What is Autism?
Autism is a developmental condition, which typically lasts a lifetime. Much about autism is still unknown, but it is believed to have neurological and/or genetic causes.
People with autism often struggle with social interaction, communication skills, as well as understanding and processing emotions—which leads to behavioural issues. Many of those with autism have different learning needs as they may have difficulty paying attention for periods of time.
Autism is part of the class of conditions known as autism spectrum disorders (ASD), which also includes Asperger’s syndrome and pervasive development disorder. Around 1 in 100 people are diagnosed with an ASD, and boys are 4 times more likely to develop autism than girls.
