Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurological condition that can affect a person’s social skills, communication, relationships, and self-regulation. It is characterized by presenting fixed interests and repetitive behaviors. It generally appears during early childhood and affects people for life.

People with autism see and feel the world differently than other people. Autism “is not cured”, is not a disease.

Autism is a spectrum condition, which means that people with autism can be affected by a certain range of behaviors, in a different way and to varying levels.

Depending on the country, autism can occur in 1 in 59 individuals and is four times more frequent in boys than in girls. Autism can affect a person of any type of nationality, race, and social status.
