What is Autism?

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that impacts brain development causing most individuals to experience communication difficulty, delayed social interactions, repetitive behaviour and restricted interest in a variety of activities.

The term “spectrum” refers to a continuum of severity. Children and adults with ASD have particular characteristics in common, but the conditions cover a wide spectrum.
