Hello from Perth Autism Support
Perth Autism Support is a local registered charity, supporting children under the age of 18 who have been diagnosed with autism, and their families.
Our aim is to ensure that every child diagnosed with autism in Perth & Kinross has access to quality activities and services.
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability which affects the way a person communicates, how they experience the world around them and how they relate to other people.
Autism is described as a spectrum condition, which means that everyone with autism, including Asperger’s Syndrome will share certain characteristics and difficulties. This does not mean, however, that all people with autism will be affected in the same way. Some people with autism will be able to lead relatively independent lives but other may need a lifetime of specialist support and intervention.
We believe at Perth Autism Support that early intervention is critical for children and young people to be enabled to lead fulfilling lives and training and awareness raising is essential to ensure that they are understood and supported in a positive way.
