Autism is estimated to affect one in every hundred people. Autism is a neurological condition which means that the Autistic Brain is organized in a different way. There is no cure, and it affects the way someone with Autism sees, perceives and processes the world around them. The impact of Autism is individual – every person with the condition will have a different set of symptoms and difficulties. However, common to all with Autism are poorer social skills affecting how they communicate and interact with others.

Autism is a Spectrum Disorder, meaning that every child with the condition is likely to present with different symptoms, different challenges, and a differing level of severity

Certain disabilities increase the risk of also being diagnosed with Autism.
Once an Autism Diagnosis is made, there are several other neurological conditions which may also be present. To be diagnosed with Autism, a person must meet The Triad of Impairment criteria, and be seen to have difficulties with all three of the following – communication, imagination and interaction. The rates of Autism Diagnoses have risen very steeply in recent decade, leading many to believe that there is an epidemic. The more likely reason for this increase is due to better diagnostic criteria and better awareness of the condition

Autism is estimated to affect one in every hundred people. Autism is a neurological condition which means that the Autistic Brain is organized in a different way. There is no cure, and it affects the way someone with Autism sees, perceives and processes the world around them. The impact of Autism is individual – every person with the condition will have a different set of symptoms and difficulties. However, common to all with Autism are poorer social skills affecting how they communicate and interact with others.

Autism is a Spectrum Disorder, meaning that every child with the condition is likely to present with different symptoms, different challenges, and a differing level of severity

Certain disabilities increase the risk of also being diagnosed with Autism.
Once an Autism Diagnosis is made, there are several other neurological conditions which may also be present. To be diagnosed with Autism, a person must meet The Triad of Impairment criteria, and be seen to have difficulties with all three of the following – communication, imagination and interaction. The rates of Autism Diagnoses have risen very steeply in recent decade, leading many to believe that there is an epidemic. The more likely reason for this increase is due to better diagnostic criteria and better awareness of the condition
