What is autism?
Autism is a serious developmental disorder that impairs the ability to communicate and interact. It refers to a lifelong brain development disorder that affects social interactions, learning, routines and communication. It is estimated that approximately 1 percent of the global population is autistic. According to WHO, 1 in 160 children has an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
The 2018 World Autism Awareness Day observance at United Nations Headquarters New York will focus on the importance of ‘empowering women and girls with autism’ and involving them and their representative organizations in policy and decision making to address these challenges.
