A developmental disability significantly affecting verbal and nonverbal communication and social interaction generally evident before age 3, that adversely affects the student's educational performance. Other characteristics often associated with autism are engagement in repetitive activities, and stereotyped movements, resistance to environmental change or change in daily routine, and unusual responses to sensory experiences. The term does not apply if a student's educational performance is adversely affected primarily because the student has an emotional disturbance.
