Autism Spectrum Assessment Centre (ASAC)
Providing Autism Spectrum Assesment and other disability services
One of the least recognised aspects of disability is the psychological impact. For those who acquire a disability, it's often difficult to adjust to life when the way you do things and the way you feel about yourself has changed. Even for those who have lived with disability since birth, each new phase of life brings new challenges. The lives of your family members may also be affected in different ways.
