Autism spectrum disorder is a condition related to brain development that impacts how a person perceives and socializes with others, causing problems in social interaction and communication. The disorder also includes limited and repetitive patterns of behavior. The term "spectrum" in autism spectrum disorder refers to the wide range of symptoms and severity.

The Autism team is made up staff from the CRBOCES member districts, the team has attended specific trainings in Autism and are trained on the ADOS. The team is designed to help schools with interventions and to help determine if a student meets the criteria for an educational identification of Autism.
