Autism is a lifelong, developmental condition that affects the way a person communicates, interacts and processes information.
What is Autism
The term 'autism spectrum' refers to the range of ways the condition presents itself in an individual which can vary greatly from person to person and throughout their life. Together with David, a talented young illustrator who has Asperger's Syndrome, we have created an interactive animated resource to demonstrate this. You can have a look at it at www.understandautism.org.
With support from some very talented autistic individuals at Project Ability, we have transformed our animated resource into a video bringing Sam, Lisa, Ruby and Matt to life.
Meet them and understand their stories by watching the the 'Understand Autism' video.
