Autistic Spectrum Condition.
The definition of autism has changed over the decades and could change in future years as we understand more. Some people feel the spectrum is too broad, arguing an autistic person with 24/7 support needs cannot be compared with a person who finds supermarket lights too bright.
Speech, Language and Communication Needs.
Speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) encompasses a wide range of difficulties such as a speech delay, autism or Down’s syndrome.
Speech, language and communication are crucial for reading, learning in school, for socialising and making friends, and for understanding and controlling emotions or feelings.
Great care must be taken with attributing stereotypical behaviours to individuals with Autistic Spectrum Needs. We under diagnose girls because they don’t struggle with the social aspects quite so much, making the assumption that because they have friends and can communicate with them that the other difficulties displayed are due to something else instead.
