Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurological and developmental disorder that impacts an individual’s social and communication skills, including how they interact with others. ASD also affects how the individual learns and behaves.
Common attributes of ASD can include and may look like:
– Preference for routine
– Difference brains
– Different ways of communicating
– Autistic joy and deep interests
– Autistic play
– Accommodations for sensory processing differences
– Autistic communication styles
– Autistic social skills
– Learning while moving and fidgeting
Having an understanding of ASD and its characteristics can help in not only embracing the strengths of the individual but encouraging methods of coping in areas that are causing distress.
