According to the recent research, autism affects one out of every 150 children in Australia. It is a disorder that negatively affects thinking process and social development of the children. In the humans, conversion into maturity commonly occurs at the age of fourteen. It is the good time to help an autistic child to get ready for the adulthood.

High functioning and low functioning are generally two types of the AUTISM. The adults who are suffering from low functioning autistic need regular care. They can live at home with their parents or at care centers such as Autism care Victoria where their needs can be regularly addressed. For most of these people, they feel that the world is the faraway place and that they will never reach. Generally, the families of the patients take care of these low functioning autistic adults because group homes and care centers are found rare and much expensive.

On the other side, the adults suffering from high-functioning autism can be cured completely and they can lead comparatively normal lives than low functioning autistic adults. They can care for themselves, do jobs and live on their own. But it doesn’t mean that they do not face any problem. The capability of adults with high functioning autism to take care of themselves is repeatedly directly related to the need-based education they received in their childhood. High functioning autistic adults can work as contributing members of society if they are aware of their social responsibilities. They can live their life like normal people. They can have a bright career, families and social lives. In terms of employment, autistic suffering people generally are best suitable to jobs that deal with their specific knowledge and skill. In addition to this, there are group homes and autistic care centers that help autistic people take care of themselves.

Autism is a spectrum disorder and it is very difficult to suggest common advice for autistic adults. Some may require regular care, while others are sharp minded and intelligent. Each autistic person is very much different from others and needs different levels of care.

The organizations such as Autism care Victoria provide employment opportunities for autistic adults. In addition to this, they arrange so many job training programs based on the knowledge and education for the autistic adults.

There are many autistic adults that have a bachelor degree or college diploma and are very much innovative and there are others, autistic adults also that require quite easy and effortless jobs in order to succeed. Such organizations also teach cooking and other independent tasks to autistic adults so that they can become independent.

Many autistic adults point out that the reaction of other people to their strange behaviour is a lot disturbing. It is important for the society to become familiar with autism. Autistic adults and children also require the special understanding like the people with other disabilities. They are not useless, however; they are different from the majority of people. It is important for the normal people to understand the feelings of autistic people well.
