Whilst people with autism can be severely impaired in some aspects of life they can also be ‘normal’, or even superior, in others. Obvious symptoms progressively to appear after the age of six months, become more established by age two or three years. The symptoms tend to continue through adulthood, although often in a less obvious form.
