ASD includes all Autism disorders, including those previously recognized as subtypes, such as childhood disintegrative disorder, autistic disorder, and others. ASD is sometimes associated with difficulties in social interaction, problems with motor coordination, attention issues, and others. But people with ASD may excel in the arts, mathematics, music and other skills. Over three million Americans are affected by autism, and the rate appears to be increasing over time. The scholarships being offered are intended to provide additional impetus for those with ASD to further their education.
