Autism Awareness Week 29th March – 4th April
Autism is a spectrum condition and affects people in different ways. Like all people, autistic people have their own strengths and weaknesses. Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how people communicate and interact with the world. One in 100 people are on the autism spectrum and there are around 700,000 autistic adults and children in the UK.
