OUR PROMISE TO SARATOGA COUNTY
Our commitment to resources‚ support‚ awareness and advocacy.
Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person's ability to communicate and interact with others. It is defined by a certain set of behaviors and falls under the diagnostic category of a Pervasive Developmental Disorder. It is a "spectrum disorder" that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees.
In Saratoga County‚ we organized the Council on Autism. Our goal is to provide information and education on resources‚ services and support to those affected by Autism. Everyone deserves a promise of support.
EARLY HELP MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Young children learn and develop differently. One baby may walk earlier than another‚ while another baby might talk first. Often‚ these differences will even out. But‚ some children will need extra help. Look for signs that your infant or toddler might need extra help. Early help makes a difference! If your child does have a problem‚ the earlier you get help‚ the better.
Support for our residents of Saratoga County through the Council on Autism is available by contacting our council representatives.
