According to Amaze (Autism Victoria), Autism Spectrum Disorder is defined as:
"A developmental condition which affects individuals in two main areas:
- Individuals have impaired communication and social interaction
- Individuals have restricted, repetitive patterns of behaviour, interests or activities
ASD affects the way that individuals are able to interact with others and they often find the world to be a confusing place. Difficulty communicating can result in 'melt downs' – this differs from a tantrum as the individual does not choose to have a melt down.
Individuals with ASD often have sensory sensitivities – they may be under- or over-sensitive to any of the five senses."
