Autism - a lifelong condition
With grateful thanks to the National Autistic Society for their help in compiling this article.
All people with Autistic Spectrum Difficulties (ASD) have some degree of social and communication difficulties. Autism is a lifelong developmental disability. Some people have accompanying learning disabilities, others have average or above-average intelligence.
Those most severely affected by ASD will benefit from the use of a specialised programme such as those offered by TEACCH or ABA/VB. Some at the extremes of the spectrum may cope well with the demands of academic study - including at the very highest levels.
