Autism is estimated to affect one in every 100 people in the UK, although in the US their current estimate is one in every 68 people. Autism is a neurological condition which means that the autistic brain is organized in a different way. There is no cure, and it affects the way someone with autism sees, perceives, and processes the world around them. The impact of autism is individual - every person with the condition will have a different set of symptoms and difficulties. However, common to all with autism are poorer social skills affecting how they communicate and interact with others.
