Individual's on the autistic spectrum may struggle with relationship's and social interaction due to difficulties with communication. It would make it difficult for relationship's to work if there is a lack of understanding each other due to the break down in communication.

Describe the potential effects of discrimination The potential effects of discrimination can be different for different people. The effects can be physical, emotional or a combination of both.

This will make the child feel very different from others. I have listed other possible effects below * Long term effects may be: * Loss of motivation * Restricted opportunities * Limited access to services * Long term depression * Increased behavior problems * Difficulty communicating * Lack of education * Lack of achievement The effects listed above are not only ones that affect the individual; they are effects that can be experienced by the individual’s family and friends too.

Disability can affect a service user’s ability to communicate with the service workers. Sight impairments can make it difficult for service users to read leaflets and consent forms. This is a barrier because it means that the service user can’t fully access all the information that is required in order for them to use the service entirely e.g.
A person may become suspicious, irritable, depressed, apathetic, anxious, or agitated, especially in situations where memory problems are causing difficulties. • Changes in personality: People’s personalities can change a little with age.
