Msitua - Autism Consultancy.
I set up Msitua an Autism Consultancy in late 2010 as a direct result of my working with various individuals and Local Authorities delivering training workshops/talks on autism, asperger syndrome and challenging behaviour, my hope was then as it is now - to rearrange the viewers perspective towards autism. As I always state - Autism is not a tragedy, ignorance is the real tragedy.
I am a conference speaker and trainer, I deliver first person perspective presentations and training sessions with a difference, to parents, carers Local Authority Services. Service Provider. Parent groups and Support Networks

1. Introduction to Autism.
2. Autism Awareness.
3. Autism and Asperger Syndrome.
4. Moving on from Diagnosis ' The Way Forward'

The exact cause of autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) is still not known, current research tends to highlight genetic factors have a part to play. Whatever the cause, ASD is a condition which is pervasive and lifelong, the one thing that can differ greatly is severity from person to person, there are also marked differences in learning difficulties.
Every person on the autistic spectrum is an individual, as such they will present unique personality/characteristics, with this in mind any two people given the same diagnosis, i.e. Asperger Syndrome, will no doubt act differently, have varying skills from each other.These combinations combined with varying symptoms can be found in any degree of severity, this gives them the uniqueness they have, but also makes it more difficult for the neuro-typical person to understand.
The way in which autism presents itself can differ greatly, from those people with low-functioning autism (LFA) to those people with high-functioning autism (HFA) and Asperger Syndrome. Most autistic people process and respond to information in varying and unique ways, sometimes aggressive/ self-injurious tendencies/behaviours can be present, also the following list of traits may be exhibited.
