Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a "spectrum disorder" that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause for Autism. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in every 110 births in the United States and almost 1 in 70 boys is affected by Autism.
