Understanding Autism
Jay Nolan Community Services

Resource Center

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disability; signs typically appear during early childhood and affect a person’s ability to communicate, and interact with others. One of the most important things you can do as a parent or caregiver is to learn the early signs of autism and become familiar with the typical developmental milestones that your loved one should be reaching.

Donations to JNCS help make sure individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities get the customized support they need to live a quality life in our California communities.

When using any source of information about autism, it is vital to enquire what that source considers autism to be.
