Autism affects more than 1 in 100 people – Over 700,000 people in UK are autistic, which means that 2.8m people have a relative on the autism spectrum. Which means that potentially we will have a percentage of these individuals or relatives coming through our clinics doors. Autism is a developmental disability. It’s a DIFFERENCE in how the brain works.
Everyone is a bit autistic? – While everyone might recognise some autistic traits or behaviours in people they know, to be diagnosed with autism, a person must consistently display behaviours across all the different areas of the condition. Just having a fondness for routines, a good memory or being shy doesn’t make a person 'a bit autistic'. Autism is a mental health problem. Not all people with Autism experience mental health problems, however due to lack of effective support and knowledge of the condition there is sadly a high percentage that do!.
