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
communicating and interacting with others
experiencing and displaying emotions
forming and defining friendships and relationships
innovating, imagining and playing
perceiving or sensing the world around us (sensory profile)
