Nevertheless, the child is experiencing a healthy growth, but I findreasonable reasons to associate his delay in communication and repetitive behavior to autism. Ihave attached a report on the assessment done on the child. In case of any question, kindlycontact me.Yours faithfullyJoanna SmithCase study ReportThis report based on an ASD assessment done by Sam Brown. He was born on 25thJanuary 2011.
