About AUTISM SOCIETY CAPE BRETON

Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder.

It happens in all levels of society, knows no

socio-economical boundaries, and affects all

facets of a person’s life. Approximately 1,500 Cape Bretoner's have autism and it is four times more likely in boys than girls.

Autism is characterized by impairment in three areas of development:

Communication (Verbal and Non-Verbal)

Social Interactions

Behaviour

There is little known about what causes autism and no known cure although treatments are available.
