My name is Ann and my brother, Ben, has autism. So what does this mean? Well, I'm going to tell you all about it.
People with autism have difficulty in three main areas. These are (as grown-ups describe):
difficulty with communication
difficulty with socialising
difficulty with imagination.
But what do these words mean? I'm going to explain it in my own words and use my brother as an example because I know him well.
What other difficulties do people with autism have?
