The last article in the Autism Spectrum disorder series explores the common myths and misconceptions the general population has on autism.

It is important to clear up any myths /misconceptions - not only so that your perception of autism is not clouded by them hence reducing the social stigma, but also so that you can debunk these myths when other people say them to you.
