Adults with autism may find it difficult to understand what others think or feel, become very anxious in social situations, have difficulty making friends or prefer to be alone, and unintentionally appear frank, rude, or disinterested in others. If you suspect that you or a loved one is exhibiting signs of autism, you can use the Ada app for a free health assessment. Alternatively, you can learn more about how our symptom checker works before trying it out. Some adults on the autism spectrum may experience symptoms that make everyday life more challenging.
Others may simply feel that something is different about them compared to other people. This feeling is likely something they have experienced since childhood, but were unable to identify the cause. In some cases, they may not even be aware that they are behaving differently than others.
