What is Autism Spectrum Disorder?
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is a complex developmental disability and affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. It is often characterized by stereotyped or repetitive use of language, motor mannerisms, lack or delay of spoken language, inflexible adherence to specific non-functional routines and little or no eye contact.
Please remember each child with ASD is different! One child may exhibit many obvious “autistic like” characteristics and another child may only exhibit them in certain situations. A popular saying in the autism world is “if you meet one person with autism, you’ve met one person with autism.”
To update soon
The objective of the lending closet is to allow children with disabilities to use the equipment to determine if it would be beneficial for them in the long term.
EVAN was founded in 2012 by Scott and Patti Kruppo, and is named after their son, Evan, who was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
