Autism: Symptoms and why you might need care

Having autism can mean that you face many challenges on a daily basis, this may leave you feeling stressed or worried.

Through having a care plan, we can provide support and help you manage your condition.

What is autism?

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects how you communicate and interact with others, as well as how you process and respond to sensory information.

You may find it hard to understand how other people think or feel or you may be overwhelmed when surrounded by bright lights or loud noises.

It is also common to get anxious about unfamiliar situations or social events.

Other symptoms include difficulty in regulating behaviour or decreased motor skills.

What support might you need?

Due to these difficulties, you may need more assistance than your peers to complete everyday tasks and activities.

This can include help with communication such as interpreting nonverbal cues or providing alternative forms of communication.

With a care plan, you may also require help managing feelings of anxiety or handling changes in routine.

You may need support with getting around safely or finding ways to channel energy through activities like sports or music.

For these reasons, a specialised care plan will help you participate in society and manage your condition.
