We are students of IGCSE Global Perspectives and our topic is Health and Disease which is why we are working on Autism Spectrum Disorder Awareness as it is an issue on the rise which is why we have chosen it as the topic for our Team Project. Our aim is to promote awareness about this disorder in people so they learn to accept autistic people in society.
Autism is a complex, lifelong developmental disability that typically appears during early childhood and can impact a person's social skills, communication, relationships, and self-regulation. People affected may find some aspects of communication and social interaction challenging. They may have difficulty relating to people and understanding their emotions. Autistic adults may also have inflexible thought patterns and behavior, and may carry out repetitive actions.
Such circumstances make them different, and they face various challenges throughout life. The biggest being feeling “alienated” or looked down upon by their peers and society. Making day to day life even more challenging for someone already affected.
We need to raise awareness, to achieve acceptance for people with Autism. Acceptance can lead to greater support, which is necessary for autistic people to reach their full potential. Autistic rights are Human Rights.
