What is Autism?
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), commonly referred to as Autism, is reported to be a lifelong developmental disability that affects the way a person communicates and relates to people around them. Children and adults with Autism have difficulties with everyday social interaction. Their ability to develop friendships is generally limited, as is their capacity to understand other people's emotional expression. People with autism can often have accompanying learning disabilities but everyone with the condition shares a difficulty in relating to the world around them.
