Lincolnshire Autistic Society
Welcome to Lincolnshire Autistic Society Website. We have developed this site to be an Information Hub for anyone looking for information and support about Autism. We hope you find the information you need, but if not please use the contact us page to get in touch.
The Society is dedicated to building awareness and understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorders [ASD] (and conditions related to autism) in order to improve the quality of life and outcomes for children and adults, their parents and carers living with ASD.
What is Autism
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how people perceive the world and interact with others. Read more
Autistic people see, hear and feel the world differently to other people. If you are autistic, you are autistic for life; autism is not an illness or disease and cannot be cured’.Often people feel being autistic is a fundamental aspect of their identity.
Autism is a spectrum condition. All autistic people share certain difficulties, but being autistic will affect them in different ways. Some autistic people also have learning disabilities, mental health issues or other conditions, meaning people need different levels of support. All people on the autism spectrum learn and develop. With the right sort of support, all can be helped to live a more fulfilling life of their own choosing.
