What causes someone to have autism / asperger's?

Genetic: Leading theories include strong genetic predisposition as we know that autism runs in families. There are twin studies that support this from leading universities. Sometimes "chunks" of DNA are missing, or duplicated. We also know of anatomic brain differences in children on the spectrum versus "neurotypical" kids. The way their "brains are wired" is "different" we are learning. ...Read more

Is this new evidence that MMR may cause autism after all? Http://t.Co/pkcuulr

(nice question from a 2 year-old, and very relevant, but now get going and get your parents to catch you up on your vaccinations. You are overdue, and mumps, measles and rubella are problematic diseases that could have serious effects). ...Read more

I just turned 21 yesterday and my friend says I'll be fine but I'm worried cause I'm high functioning autism and worried about the effects on autisn?

Maturing: Turning 21 solidifies for many that you are an adult albeit a young adult. You're likely responding to a new awareness of what others your age are doing academically and socially.

Having a therapist's help may make a big difference. Best wishes. ...Read more
