Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, is a complex developmental disorder that impacts the nervous system and causes repetitive behavior and impaired communication and social interaction. It typically emerges during infancy or early childhood years. Affecting approximately 1 in 68 children in the United States, the disorder often leads to additional health issues, such as seizures, anxiety, sleep problems, and gastrointestinal distress.
Treatments for autism typically involve a combination of behavioral treatments and medicines for helping manage high energy, focus issues, depression, and seizures. There are no medications that cure autism or even treat the disease’s main symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
