Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism is a lifelong condition affecting how someone communicates with and relates to other people and the world around them. It can be thought of as an invisible or hidden disability.

Individuals with autism share certain areas of difficulty, but are affected in different ways and of different levels.

We receive a large number of queries around supporting young people with autism in Scouting, therefore, we have created a suite of information and guidance, which can be found at scouts.org.uk/autism
