Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex and lifelong developmental disorder. It is characterised by “marked difficulties in social interactions, impaired communication, restricted and repetitive interests and behaviours, and sensory sensitivities” (Autism Spectrum Australia, 2015). Without treatment, people with ASD can suffer from severe impairments of daily functioning and may have a heightened risk of depression and anxiety. Luckily help is available – our clinic has a number of psychologists or counsellors who have specialised experience in dealing with ASD.
