Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects an individual in multiple ways.

It is internationally recognised every year on April 2 and has three most common classifications: Autistic Disorder, Asperger's Syndrome and Pervasive Developmental Disorder.  Autism Spectrum Australia says nearly one in 80 Australians live with some form of autism, which is an estimated 40 per cent increase since 2014.


Highlights

  • Genetic research suggests that if one parent has autism, the child may most likely develop autism too
  •  Autism is more prevalent in young boys than in young girls
  • 40,000 participants from migrant communities are receiving support from the NDIS
