🧩 What is Autism? 🧩
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. There is not one autism but many subtypes, most influenced by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Because autism is a spectrum disorder, each person with autism has a distinct set of strengths and challenges.
💯 Emphasys Centre proudly participates in the Erasmus+ KA2 projects DiLASD and Ready Teddy Go, supporting these groups of people and their carers.
✨ Whether you are on the autism spectrum, care for someone who does, or looking to support a diverse, accepting, and kind community we encourage you to participate to help create a world where all people with autism can reach their full 💪 potential.
