Join us in celebrating World Autism Day on the 2nd of April 2023!
Autism is not an illness or a disease. It is a lifelong developmental condition caused by differences in the brain which affects how people communicate and interact with the world. This definition has changed over time and could change again as some feel the spectrum is too broad.
Autism is part of the neurodiversity paradigm which recognises that there is a huge variety of ways in which we think, learn and relate to each other. This diversity and difference is a natural human variation.
