In Canada, one in every 68 children are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. It is the fastest growing and most commonly diagnosed neurological disorder in the country — but not many people truly understand what it is.

There's a common saying in the autism community: "If you've met one person with autism, you've met one person with autism."

On this Now or Never, you'll learn about autism from people who are surviving and thriving with the disorder in their own unique ways. And you'll discover the challenges people with autism are tackling head on.
