Autism is a type of developmental disorder. This means that children with autism develop their learning and thinking skills in unusual ways and at different ages to other children.
1.Autism always affects the development of communication skills and social skills.
2.People with autism have repetitive behaviour patterns and obsessive interests.
3.They have trouble accepting changes in their life.
4.Autism can affect their thinking skills, especially reasoning and imagination.
5.About 75% of children with autism also have intellectual disability
Autism is not a disease or an illness.
People with autism have problems with communication, social interaction, imagination and repetitive activities.
Autism cannot be cured. People with autism will have difficulties all of their life, but they can, with a lot of help, learn new skills.
Some children with mild difficulties will be able to live independently, but others need support all of their lives.
