Autism

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are experienced as developmental  difficulties in social interaction and communication, with behavioural and sensory sensitivities. The word "Spectrum" is used, because every child with Autism is different, and there is an infinite range of ways in which Autism is experienced. This makes it a very challenging health condition for children, families, health professionals and educators alike, so it is imperative that everyone works together in a collaborative partnership if the best outcomes for children living with Autism are to be achieved.

 

There are many web-based resources available to families and health professionals, and we offer just a few below.
