Autism spectrum disorder, as defined by the National Institute of Mental Health, is the name for a group of developmental disorders characterized by difficulty in communicating with others, repetitive behaviors, a limited number of interests or activities, and these disorders compromise a person’s ability to function socially. Dr. Daniel Larrow has moved to Kentucky to work on caring for people with autism by modifying their environment to maximize their potential.

Tip: Dr. Larrow encourages caregivers to immerse their children in nurturing learning environments with consistent practices, and adjust the child’s environment to find a level and type of stimulation that promotes positive behaviors.
