Autism Forum

The team have been looking at ways to try to make the lives of people who have Asperger Syndrome and the lives of those who are with them less stressful.  The main conclusions the team came to were that understanding is a key problem.  As a result of their findings, the team have devised a “Triad of Understanding” approach to Autism.


Not all disabilities are visible – some are not immediately obvious, such as learning difficulties, mental health as well as mobility, speech, visual or hearing impairments.
