ARE NEVER HEARD
What is Autism? Autism Spectrum Disorder is a neurological disorder which encompases a wide range of different behaviors, as well as different social and cognitive patterns. Everyone on the spectrum has different symptoms and everyone is different. Each person experiences Autism differently, meaning that no Autistic person is the same.
While there are some people who are non-verbal, some people who are verbal can become non-verbal under stressful situations. While Autism ranges from mild to severe, someone who is higher on the spectrum can still have more severe symptoms of Autism at any time, depending on what is going on.
Autism also causes sensory processing, language processing, and learning issues.
