Autism Spectrum Disorder is a lifelong developmental condition that can affect the way a person relates to the world around them and how they interact with others. Symptoms usually appear in early childhood, however sometimes people are diagnosed later in life.

Each person is unique and will require different levels of support. Some areas of difficulty could be social communication and interaction, repetitive behaviours and preference to routine. Some individuals may also experience sensitivity to sensory experiences – sound, smell, sights, smells and tastes.

People with autism can see the world differently and can develop a strong interest in topics or subjects, which allows them to create amazing ideas.
