The majority of people with ASD also have unusual ways of learning, paying attention, or reacting to different sensory information. The thinking and learning abilities of people with ASD vary significantly in the levels of severity. ASD can be present before the age of 2 and lasts throughout a person’s life.
Recent international research suggests an average prevalence of autism in 1 in every 175 children (Insel, 2006). It occurs in all racial, ethnic, and social groups and is four times more likely to affect boys than girls.
