About Autism Spectrum Disorder
ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) often causes individuals to struggle to understand and relate to other people and to their environment and this can often result in extreme behaviour, which can be seen as tantrums in children and is their way of telling us how anxious they are feeling.
Individuals with an ASD look no different to anyone else. Parents of children with autism report that others often think that their children are badly behaved and misunderstand the situation. Adults with ASDs also find that they are misunderstood and harshly judged.
Is there a Solution?
ASDs affect 1 in every 160 people. They affect about 4 times as many boys as girls. It is a lifelong disorder and there is no cure. On the positive side, early intervention can have tremendous results in helping those affected to live to their full potential. For older individuals, timely and meaningful support, advice and information can also be critical to quality of life outcomes.
