‚ÄčWhat is Autism?

The National Autistic Society define Autism as "...a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to, other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them."





Simply put, Autism often makes us see and hear the world differently. We may not understand when people are sarcastic or be able to 'read' faces. We may find being around people or certain situations difficult or challenging. Everyone is difference.

If you'd like to share your experiences of living with Autism or Aspergers on this website you can email the Well Aware team.
