Autism is a disorder that refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication, as well as by unique strengths and differences.
Clinicians are expected to diagnose people with autism at level 1, level 2, or level 3. These levels reflect individuals’ ability to communicate, adapt to new situations, expand beyond restricted interests, and manage daily life. People at level 1 need relatively little support, while people at level three need a great deal of support.
At Capernaum Medical Center treat autism with integrity and compassion, our main goal is to have an early diagnosis, create a treatment plan including therapies.
