Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) is a recognised clinical diagnosis describing a range of difficulties with social interactions, social communication and social imagination. Adults and children living with Autism will experience a range of different strengths and difficulties ranging from mild attributes to more severe or profound difficulties. Many people live alongside Autism without needing any additional help or support but some people may find it helpful to have an assessment to identify if any recommendations can be made. How to best manage and live with Autism is unique to each individual. Completing an assessment for Autism may support you with understanding how to manage your difficulties better.
