Autism is a lifelong developmental condition characterised by difficulties in social interaction, communication, restricted and repetitive interests and behaviours, and sensory sensitivities.

The word spectrum reflects the wide range of challenges that people on the spectrum experience and the extent to which they may be affected. About 675,000* Australians are Autistic and each person has different strengths, interests, challenges and aspiration.

*Based on latest prevalence estimates and Australian Bureau of Statistics census data

It is four times more common in boys than girls.

The quality of life for many children and adults can be significantly improved by an early diagnosis and appropriate evidence-informed treatment.

Aspect supports people on the spectrum and their families by providing information, education and a variety of services aimed at meeting the specific needs of each individual.
