What is Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?
People on the spectrum often find it difficult to read and reciprocate social signals such as body language, facial expressions, and eye contact. As a result, they may find it hard to communicate and interact with others.
Although people on the spectrum often have difficulty socially, many have above average intelligence, especially those with Asperger’s syndrome. They may excel in fields such as science, arts, literature, maths, and computer programming.
