What is Autism?

What We Learned from this Video:

  • Autistic individuals have trouble with communication, repetitive behavior, unexpected changes, and sensory overload.
  • When overwhelmed, autistic people can suffer from emotional shutdowns.
  • Autistic people need support from an early age, or else they are likely to struggle as they make their way through life.
  • The National Autistic Society exists to support autistic people, both by directly assisting those with autism and working to change the attitudes of society as a whole.

The National Autistic Society exists to provide a support structure for autistic children and adults. Need additional support for an autism diagnosis? We can help!
