AUTISM

Autism is fundamentally a neurodevelopmental difference that is lifelong and appears in utero. Autistic brains develop differently in terms of structure and neuronal connectivity. 

Autistic individuals think, process, sense, move and interact differently. The Autistic community often define Autism experientially, as differences in 

  • thinking

  • moving

  • communicating and interacting with others

  • transitioning

  • experiencing and displaying emotions

  • forming and defining friendships and relationships

  • innovating, imagining and playing

  • perceiving or sensing the world around us (sensory profile)
