WHAT IS ASD?Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)


Hi everyone!


This is what I found!


Existing research yet to identify a definitive cause for autism. 

Just as autism is a spectrum, there is a spectrum of causes for autism as well. The cause of autism in one person differs from the cause of autism in another. Researchers are still trying to understand how genetic or environmental factors may play a role. The cause of autism could be due to a single gene, a collection of genes, a combination of genetic and environmental factors and so on and so forth. There is no known single cause for autism.  


For a clearer explanation, refer to this video.


Please feel free to add in any information you may find. Please share.

    Hi all, This is a great article written by Jasmine Goh a writer, author, and educator. Based in Singapore and Southeast Asia. She writes about autism-friendly environments that could translate how we reimagine and design the home and city environment. This is one of our highly recommended reads!
