Levels of Autism

I have seen this statement a lot on some of the support pages I follow and heard the questions asked amongst parents:

“What level of Autism is your child?”

I almost want to say level 40, but I think it would just cause more confusion.

According to the article in the link below, there are three levels. The level of your child dependant on the amount of support your child needs with day-to-day tasks.

What are the three levels of autism?

There are also other labels like High or Low functioning – again, how much help does your child need with everyday tasks.

My advice: Focus on the strengths of your child and support the places where help is needed.
