What is Autism?

Autism is a lifelong developmental condition that affects how people perceive the world and interact with others. Persons with autism see, hear and feel the world differently to other people.

Autism is not an illness or disease. Often people feel autism is a fundamental aspect of their identity. Autism is a spectrum condition. Persons with autism share certain challenges but autism will affect them in different ways.

Some people with autism have learning disabilities, mental health issues or other conditions, requiring different levels of support.

With the right support, persons with autism can live a more fulfilling life of their own choosing.
