Autism Spectrum Conditions

Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) is the latest preferred terminology from Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) thus taking away the stigma and negative connotations that can be associated when using the word 'disorder'.

Autism is a spectrum of neurodevelopmental conditions characterised by:

  • difficulties in the development of social relationships and communication skills,
  • usually exhibiting focussed interests,
  • repetitive behaviour and difficulties coping with unexpected change.
