What is Autism
Autism is a lifelong neuro-developmental condition that some people are born with. It can impact people in different ways, how a person communicates with and understands others, how they form relationships, their ability to understand abstract concepts, and restricted or repetitive behaviour. They may often have sensory processing issues. It affects people in different ways, to varying degrees, depending on the circumstances which is why it is described as a spectrum disorder.
