Autistic Spectrum Disorder
Many people think of autism when asked what “autistic spectrum” represents. ASD is the name used to describe a a range of disorders including Asperger syndrome but in reality all are considered to be varying degrees of autism. This section of ABLEize offer you a range of UK resources providing information, advice and facts of the autistic spectrum. This list may include world wide websites if they are felt to be beneficial to the UK.
While autism is one of the five autism spectrum disorders, Asperger’s syndrome is closest to autism in signs and likely causes; Rett syndrome and childhood disintegrative disorder share several signs with autism but may have unrelated causes.
