Autism Care Pathway

Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism is a lifelong condition. The word ‘spectrum’ is used because; this condition affects people in different ways although all people with autism share certain common (core) problems.
Autism is sometimes described as a ‘hidden disability’, not only because it has no physical signs, but also because adults with autism are some of the most excluded, and least visible, people in the UK. People with Asperger syndrome are a particularly ‘hidden group’ of people within the Autism spectrum.
