The medical community now considers autism a “whole-body disorder” because there are myriad health complications that can accompany an ASD diagnosis. Autism Speaks recently released a special report that describes advances in our understanding and treatment of these health conditions that are commonly associated with ASD. In the report, you’ll find information about seizures, gastrointestinal disorders, sleep disturbances, eating and feeding challenges, ADHD, anxiety, depression, and schizophrenia. Currently, researchers all over the world are working to better understand these conditions to help improve the quality of life for individuals with autism.
