One in 44 children in the United States is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Because autism is a spectrum disorder, each person with autism has a distinct set of strengths and challenges.
Join us for a discussion to learn more about autism; how it is diagnosed, treated, and other steps you or someone you know can use when caring for a child with autism during the Weill Cornell Medicine Wellness Series in partnership with the Harry Belafonte 115th Street Library.
