HELPING CHILDREN AND FAMILIES AFFECTED BY AUTISM
Nassan’s Place can’t STOP the diagnosis,
but we can HELP the families affected by it!
What is autism?
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) are developmental disabilities that cause substantial impairments in social interaction and communication and the presence of unusual behaviors and interests. Autism is an urgent and growing public health crisis that affects most individuals across their lifespan and demands a commensurate level of action from both the public and private sectors.
