Autism and Asperger Syndrome are on the Autistic Spectrum, this is a developmental condition affecting the way the brain processes information and how a person communicates and relates to others. People with Autistic Spectrum Disorders have difficulties in three main areas within their lives; this is referred to as the 'triad of impairments' (Lorna Wing and Judith Gould): The Triad of Impairments: 1. Impairment of Social Communication ​ 2. Impairment of Social Imagination ​ 3. Impairment of Social Relationships However, how and to what extent each person is affected is unique and has resulted in the saying ​"once you have met 1 person with autism - you have met 1 person with Autism".
