Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), is a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social interactions, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. Autism isn’t just one condition, but many types, caused by different combinations of genetic and environmental factors.
The most obvious signs of ASD appear between ages 2 and 3, but in some cases can be diagnosed as early as 18 months.
While Best Day Psychiatry and Counseling, formerly known as Fayetteville Psychiatric Associates, doesn’t have treatment providers specializing in autism spectrum disorder, we do treat the interconnected conditions. These conditions can include:
- Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
