Understanding Autisms

Updated: Oct 12, 2018

Autisms Statistics

1 in 100 people are on the autistic spectrum in the UK many are struggling to get the diagnosis and the services that they need.

90% of people have anxiety and depression often the therapies and support they need are not available.

3x as many boys as girls are diagnosed with autism, it’s increasingly believed that girls may be better at masking their difficulties, leading to their autism being missed.

Autism is a spectrum

While all people with autism share common traits, their condition will affect them in very different ways. Some individuals can live relatively independent lives; others will require a lifetime of specialist support.

People with Asperger Syndrome have average or above average intelligence and good language skills. Some may be able to function well in school or in the work place but still have a hard time socialising. Others may find even daily tasks related to independence challenging, often because they feel overwhelmed by too much information.

Regardless of where people are on the spectrum, all people with autism experience the world around them in differently, affecting how they communicate and interact with others.
