About autism

Autism affects how a person communicates and experiences the world. Autistic people can experience difficulties with communication and/or sensory processing.

It affects each person differently and is therefore often described as a spectrum. The following pages contain information about autism, from diagnosis to behaviour and from communication to education.

For a detailed look into advancing autism take a look at our report we produced in collaboration with Wild Search. The publication assembles a range of voices seeking the best outcomes for those with autism. If you’d like to read the report, click here to download a copy.
