Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability caused by differences in the brain. People with ASD often have problems with social communication, interaction, and restricted or repetitive behaviors or interests.

People with ASD may have a more challenging time regulating their emotions. As a result, they often rely on self-stimulatory behaviors to deal with intense emotions and seek out or avoid sensory stimuli like bright lights and loud sounds.
