What is autism?
ASD is a broad set of conditions that affect neurodevelopmental and nervous system functioning, resulting in difficulties in communication and social interaction, as well as in the flexibility of the person's thinking and his/her behaviour.
autism - body knowledge, joint attention & imitation
Many people with Autism and intellectual disability have difficulties in joint attention that may be present not only in the early stages of development but throughout the life cycle. As a consequence, they can lose many opportunities of communication, socialisation and meaningful learning.
