Autistic Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disability where there is a triad of impairments; social communication, social interaction and social imagination. Autism is called a spectrum as, although all individuals will suffer from difficulties in three main areas, their condition will affect them in very different ways. No two people with ASD will have the same difficulties. Asperger’s Syndrome is on the Autistic Spectrum.

Autism is categorised (DSM IV & V) as a Mental Health disorder. Autism rarely comes alone & is often associated with the comorbidity diagnoses of Anxiety, Dyslexia, Depression & Sensory Processing Disorder to name a few.
