April was World Autism Month, aimed at increasing global understanding and acceptance of people with autism. Autism can be diagnosed at any age, and with the number of people affected by autism increasing globally, there is now more to do to ensure autistic individuals are accepted and supported throughout the lifespan. Resources are available that explore what autism is, how to identify if your child may require a diagnosis, how to handle sensory input in the home, how to support better sleep and engagement with school, how to plan travelling or moving house with a child who has autism. Properly managed, autism does not have to mean an individual has to miss out on life experiences.
