The signs of Autism

Autism is a lifelong problem that affects the way a person communicates and relates to people around them. Children with autism have difficulty relating to others in a meaningful way. Their ability to develop friendships is generally limited as is their capacity to understand other people's emotional expression. Some children, but not all, have accompanying learning disabilities. All children with autism have impairments in social interaction, social communication and imagination. This is known as the 'triad of impairments'.

Some children may be diagnosed as having Asperger syndrome or high-functioning autism. Children with Asperger syndrome have fewer problems with language than those with autism, often speaking fluently, though their words can sometimes sound formal or stilted. People with Asperger syndrome do not usually have the accompanying learning disabilities associated with autism; in fact, children with Asperger syndrome are often of average or above average intelligence. Many will enter mainstream school and, with the right support and encouragement, can make good progress and go on to further education and employment.

It is important to realise that each child with autism is different from the next so the descriptions in this information sheet should only be taken as a general guide. Nevertheless, the common problems affecting social interaction, communication and imagination and the repetitive behaviour are common to all.
