Understand how to support individuals with autistic spectrum conditions. Understand the main characteristics of autistic spectrum conditions. 1.1 It is important to recognise that each person on the autistic spectrum has their own individual abilities, needs, strengths, gifts and interests because no two individuals are the same. People on the autistic spectrum have
Autism Spectrum Disorder Many of us have heard about Autism, also knows as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Some have a family member, a friend, or know someone who has ASD. Increasingly it is becoming a more common disability. “Autism is one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders in the U.S” (Autism Speaks).
ociety often has a misunderstood perception of individuals that carry autism. People infer that these autistic individuals are ignorant or sometimes even refer to them as retarded, they treat them as if they’re completely oblivious to what is actually going on around them, and they put these individuals at a lower ranking than ourselves. People that have this disorder are often mocked or called names. The world looks at them as ignorant, incapable vegetables, when in reality, they’re actually geniuses and masterminds. Autism does not make people that carry it stupid or even retarded, it doesn’t deprive them of intelligence, and it doesn’t make them any dumber than you and I. Carriers of autism usually only lack in their social skills rather than their intellectual skills. Autism is a severe disorder that hinders carriers of it to be able to communicate and socially interact with others
TITLE Autism can be a beautiful diagnosis to have, it allows individuals to see, hear, and feel things that most people do not. I have had the pleasure of becoming friends with many people who have been diagnosed with different levels of autism and they are some of the most interesting, caring, and intelligent people who I have encountered. So many people in the world do not have personal experience or knowledge of this diagnosis. Individuals

Autism affects a wide variety of people around the world and the symptoms are as diverse as the people diagnosed. The care of these people normally falls on their relatives. This causes a rift in the relationship between the autistic children and their families due to the special needs of the children. Autism affects all ages and the children do not understand why they are labeled different or how to handle situations. This leads to a strain on the family as well as a multitude of things associated with autism.
It can cause people to have difficulty interacting with other people.The difficulties that Autistic people experience are what causes others to push them off to the side. Society treats non-autistic or disabled people as if they are “normal”, and is discriminating against autistic and disabled individuals. For example, in the summer of 2013, a mother from Ontario wrote a letter to another mother of an autistic boy filled with hateful words complaining about him. She even suggested they should “euthanize the boy”. This just isn’t right. No one has the right to tell parents their child needs to be put down like an ill dog. We can not discriminate and think less of a person with Autism because they are people capable of doing amazing things just like everybody

Did you know that one in every sixty-eight births are diagnosed with the Autism spectrum disorder in other words (ASD), which is about one percent of the world’s population. And that more than three point five million people in America live with a person who has the Autism spectrum disorder. We all know that Autism is a spectrum disorder in which an abnormality is developed in the brain. It is a long life condition that has no cure for itself. People who have Autism face many difficulties in their communication and their social skills. They tend to also have bipolar reactions and moods in which one minute they’d be totally fine and normal and the next thing you know it they start to act differently becoming more aggressive which sometimes causes them to cause tantrums.

And for that, treatments are offered by support teams and doctors, schools offer special education which help families in many ways. All these resources are to help families in need who are challenged by this diagnoses.
