What is Autism?

Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people, and how they experience the world around them.

It is a spectrum condition, which means that, while all people with autism share certain difficulties, their condition will affect them in different ways.

Some people with autism can live relatively independent lives, but others may have accompanying learning disabilities and need a lifetime of specialist support.

Asperger syndrome is a form of autism.

Individuals across the spectrum of autism often have difficulties developing, maintaining, and understanding social situations and relationships.

There are currently around 700,000 people on the autism spectrum in the UK, which means around 1 in 100 people are living with autism.

What is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a group of behavioural symptoms that include:

  • Inattentiveness – most people with ADHD will have a short attention span and may be easily distracted.
  • Hyperactivity – there is likely to be some restlessness, fidgeting or overactivity. This can also lead to difficulties in sleeping and increased anxiety.
  • Impulsiveness – people with ADHD may do things without thought for the consequences, without very much reflection and without having a plan.

Some adults will have ADHD without it being diagnosed at a younger age. Those who are diagnosed at a young age are likely to continue to experience problems, though the symptoms might reduce.
