Dr. Hilya Tehrani does a deep-dive into the types of autism what it really means to be on the autism spectrum.
She first talks about those who are severely impacted and the behaviors that result, such as echolalia, stereotypic behaviors, and self-stimulatory behaviors. She also talks about the moderately-impacted and minimally-impacted forms of autism, and how behaviors along the spectrum can differ.
