Charity for Autism and Asperger’s Awareness

About Autism

Autism, or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), is a developmental disorder that causes impairments in communication, socialization, and restricted/repetitive interests or behaviors. People with autism have a difficult time understanding social cues and using social behaviors, and they have difficulty communicating using words or non-verbal behaviors. They also may have repetitive body movements, like hand-flapping, spinning/rocking their body, or looking at things out of the corner of their eye. Restricted interests can include preoccupation with certain topics or having things a certain way—like wanting to learn everything about vacuum cleaners or lining things up in a certain order.

Autism looks different for every person and affects everyone differently—that’s why it’s called “spectrum” of disorders. Autism can also look different in different cultures. While autism is a disorder that affects all populations and countries at the same rate, sometimes social behaviors vary from culture to culture. For example, eye contact expectations are different from country to country. Lack of eye contact can be a huge symptom of autism in the United States, whereas other cultures might not notice it as much.
