Autism is a permanent neurological disorder that changes how individuals learn and connect with others.

Autism is a spectrum disorder that effects individuals differently. Autistic people, like everyone else, have their own combination of strengths and disadvantages. The list of some difficulties that autistic people can share are given below:

Social communication: Autistic people have difficulties with interpreting both verbal and non-verbal language like gestures or tone of voice. Some autistic people are unable to speak or have limited speech while other autistic people have very good language skills but struggle to understand sarcasm or tone of voice. Other challenges include: interpreting it simply and failing to grasp logical ideas, requiring additional time to interpret knowledge or answer questions, and repeating what others say to them (this is called echolalia)

Social interaction: Autistic people also struggle with'reading' other people, or recognising or recognizing others' thoughts and motives, as well as communicating their own emotions. This will make navigating the social world very difficult. Autistic people are more likely to: appear to be unfeeling, when you are overburdened by other people, make time for yourself, not look for solace in the company of others, appear to be behaving'strangely' or in a socially unacceptable manner, It's difficult for you to make friends.

With its unwritten rules, the universe can seem to autistic people to be a very chaotic and confounding place. This is why they also choose rituals so that they know what will happen. They may choose to drive the same path to and from school or work, wear the same clothing, or eat the same breakfast every day.

Repetitive and restricting actions: Autistic individuals may also repeat gestures such as flapping their hands, rocking, or using an object repeatedly, such as twirling a pen or opening and closing a lock. Autistic people often participate in these activities to make them cope while they are depressed or nervous, although many autistic people do so because they love it.

Over or under sensitivity to touch, sound, light or taste: Autistic individuals can be hypersensitive or hyposensitive to noises, contact, tastes, smells, illumination, colors, temperatures, or pain. For example, they can find certain background noises, such as music in a restaurant, unbearably loud or disruptive, while others ignore or filter them out. Anxiety or even physical discomfort may result from this.

Because of their sensory disorders, many autistic individuals fear everyday circumstances. Schools, offices, and shopping malls can be especially stressful and induce sensory deprivation. There are some basic changes that can be implemented to make workplaces more autism-friendly.
