Autism Spectrum Disorder is a medical condition that affects the brain (neurological) in approximately 3.5 million people in the U.S. While a person may have a normal physical appearance, autism affects behavior. Autism can make it difficult for a person to interact socially. Autistic adults are statistically underrepresented in higher education and in the workplace.
