Social Interaction and Autism


Social difficulties affect each individual on the autism spectrum (and their family and careers) in a different way. For example some people on the autism spectrum

  • are unable or unwilling to form relationships with anyone else, including close relatives or carers
  • are unable or unwilling to take part in social activities, such as playing/working with other people
  • may face discrimination because of their inability to get on with other people, which can in turn lead to other problems such as bullying, lack of employment
