Meet John

John is 16. He has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) of moderate severity, with mild intellectual disability. He has mixed receptive/expressive language delay and uses phrased speech and stereotyped language. His mother says that he often ”flies off the handle,” but she brings him to his pediatrician today because he has had particularly aggressive outbursts at home and at school lately.
