Definition and symptoms of Autism

Children with autism have multi-faceted developmental challenges. Autism is the result of a neurological condition that affects normal brain function and the development of a child’s social interaction and communication abilities.  Autism and Asperger's syndrome are both part of autistic spectrum disorders.

At Pro Ed we carry out formal assessments of high functioning children with autism, identifying their cognitive potential and any delays in processing and memory which impacts their learning and social development.  Following the assessment our highly qualified and experienced therapists will work with you and your child to develop an on-going programme to help deal with any learning and behavioural challenges.
