What is autism?

Here’s a free printable poster I made to explain autism to children. Teachers and parents, you can download it here and print it for school or home use (no commercial uses allowed).

I am not an expert in the matter; I had a lot of help from autistic people to fine-tune the French version of this poster, but I’m always interested in learning from your own experience with autism if it differs from this explanation or if you have something to add. You can comment on this poster on my Facebook page.
