According to the National Autistic Society (NAS), autism is an incurable developmental disability, in which one’s ability to communicate and relate to the outside world is impaired, meaning empathy (the drive to identify with others’ emotions), socialising and picking up on cues, such as subtlety or irony, are virtually impossible.The term Asperger’s was coined some 60 years ago, derived from the Austrian paediatrician Hans Asperger, who believed that mildly autistic people could lead normal lives, especially if given the proper encouragement.
