autistic spectrum disorders (ASD)

"Music will definitely play a part. To put it simply, music has opened a big window and a light has come on."

Noreen, Alifie and Louie’s mum

People with ASD struggle to make sense of the world and other people, often suffer anxiety and find it hard to build and maintain social relationships.

An estimated 700,000 people are currently living with ASD in the UK. The number of diagnoses has increased dramatically in recent years.

People with ASD may have a learning disability or other difficulties.
