Autism is a mysterious neurological disorder that has no definitive cause and cure at present. Individuals with autism are typically perceived to be anti-social and do not enjoy the company of others. However, it is less known that such behaviour is the result of inborn social and communication impairment; being born with a disorder is not their choice. In fact, their inability to integrate into the society at times makes them helplessly think that they do not belong to this planet. In our four comprehensive profile feature stories, we look into the joys, woes, struggles and difficulties that individuals with and related to autism face, as they battle with social stigma and insufficient resources. We also examine the topic from education, economic, social and employment and therapy-support aspects, interviewing experts for their insights in these areas. The multimedia feature is found at http://reachautism.sg
