Autism is a developmental disability. It affects how a person relates to and communicates with other people, as well as how they make sense of the world around them.
It is a spectrum condition. This means that although all people with autism have certain difficulties in common, the symptoms and characteristics can occur in a wide variety of combinations and range from mild to severe.
