Many people are unaware of the full spectrum of autism disorders.
Autism is a developmental disorder that appears in the first 3 years of life, and affects the brain's normal development of social and communication skills. Hear about the signs that can help with an early diagnosis and the treatments that can make a difference on this special 1-hour edition of Second Opinion: Autism airing Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 10 p.m. on WXXI.
This special is part of Dialogue on Disability: The Herman & Margaret Schwartz Community Series, a week-long outreach initiative hosted by WXXI and Al Sigl Center Communities that is designed to stimulate community dialogue about the perspectives and abilities of people with disabilities.
Second Opinion is made possible in part by support from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA), which has been the major funder since the series’ inception in 2004.
