What is Autism Spectrum Disorder?
What are the signs of ASD?
If you have autism, there are particular areas of your life where you are likely to experience barriers:
- Managing social situations and social interactions
- Communicating with other people
- Developing and maintaining social relationships
Additionally, people with ASD may find it hard to cope with changes and rely on extraordinarily strict routines to manage their lives. Some people have very intense interests in particular areas, and dedicate most of their energy and time to pursuing these interests. They might also experience sensory sensitivities (e.g. sensitivity to light, sounds, textures).
