    What is Autism?

    Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), usually called autism, is something you’re born with. Autism means that the way you think is different to most people. This means you may behave differently, and have different strengths and difficulties. You may sometimes find it hard to understand the world around you.

    You may have difficulty:

    • talking and learning the meaning of words
    • making friends or fitting in
    • dealing with changes (like trying new foods, having a new teacher, or having toys moved from their normal places)
    • dealing with loud noises, bright lights, or crowds

    You may have a little trouble with these things, or a lot. Some children need only a little bit of help, and others might need a lot of help with learning and doing everyday things. With lots of support around you, and by telling your friends how they can help you too, you can feel comfortable at school and home.
