Autism is estimated to affect one in every hundred people in the UK, although in the US their current estimate is one in every sixty-eight people. Autism is a neurological condition which means that the Autistic Brain is organised in a different way. There is no cure, and it affects the way someone with Autism sees, perceives and processes the world around them. The impact of Autism is individual – every person with the condition will have a different set of symptoms and difficulties. However, common to all with Autism are poorer social skills affecting how they communicate and interact with others.
