Autism Spectrum Disorder

Every year, more and more children get diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. With an onset prior to three years of age, these children spend the majority of their lives dealing with the academic and social implications that are associated with this brain disorder.

The exact cause of autism remains unknown however IMRIC is committed to making as many strides in research in this area as possible.
