Autism is a medical disorder defined by behavioral characteristics which can include language and communication impairments, difficulty interacting socially as well as repetitive and restricted interests. Some children are born with signs of autism at birth, others regress into autistic behaviors around the age of two.
Dr. Standing follows MAPS (Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs) recommendations for autism management.
It is thought that there is an overlap of genetic susceptibility, environmental factors, gut microbiome and the immune system that lead to the complex clinical presentation of autism.
