According to Autism Spectrum Australia: Autism is a condition that affects how a person thinks, feels, interacts with others, and experiences their environment.

“It is estimated that 1 in 70 people are on the autism spectrum,” meaning that it is important to understand what autism really is and to clear up any misconceptions. ❤

Australian Bureau of Statistics, estimates 205, 000 Australians with autism in 2018, a 25.1% increase from 165, 000 in 2015.
