Autism, Trauma and "Behaviour"

Did you know Trauma can have a profound impact and long-term consequences for anyone who experiences it. Research has shown that autistic individuals are 3 times more likely to experience trauma than the rest of the population.

Autism & Trauma is such an interesting & important area, but it’s often been overlooked, until now. Experiences in childhood such as social exclusion, bullying, physical and sexual abuse, loss of a loved one, sensory trauma, transitions & changes, or social difficulties, can have a major influence on an autistic person’s learning and development.

Trauma can affect autistic individuals in many different ways and can be difficult to recognise. For example, they might become more upset, angry, or withdrawn. Unfortunately, the this can often be misdiagnosed as ‘challenging behaviour’, leading to even more trauma and a reduction in learning opportunities. This can have a critical impact and may lead to long lasting consequences affecting both physical and mental wellbeing.
