The Scottish Society for Autism is a non-profit, voluntary organization dedicated to providing the best possible care, support, and education for people of all ages with autism throughout Scotland. The society also works to raise the awareness of autism among the general public and professionals working in this field. Autism is a genetic disorder characterized by difficulties in relating to, or understanding, other people and social situations; difficulties in acquiring any form of communication; and a lack of imaginative ability, often substituted by obsessive, repetitive behavior and a strong resistance to change. Established in 1976, the society has programs that provide residential and day services for people with autism from all over Scotland.
