What is Autism?

Autism is a lifelong developmental difference that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people, and how they experience the world around them.

Autism is a spectrum, which means that, while all autistic people share certain differences, this will affect them in different ways.

Some autistic people can live independent lives, but others may have accompanying challenges and possibly need longer term specialist support.
