What is Autism?

12th March 2014
What is Autism, are you on the spectrum?

There are many people on the Autism spectrum who have gone undiagnosed, this thread is to give awareness of autism.

Many children grow into adulthood unable to relate or understand the social and environmental factors that surround them, making them feel alienated and isolated, many going into depression, sufferring mental health issues, developing Ocd and anxiety related illnesses.

For an adult to understand what autism is and where they are on the spectrum is vital. It is not only essential for the person, but the awareness is vital for carers, parents, close and extended family.

How do people with autism see the world?

People with autism have said that the world, to them, is a mass of people, places and events which they struggle to make sense of, which can cause them considerable anxiety.

In particular, understanding and relating to other people, and taking part in everyday family and social life may be harder for them. Other people appear to know, intuitively, how to communicate and interact with each other, and some people with autism may wonder why they are 'different'.
