There is no known single cause for autism spectrum disorder. What we know is that it is something you are born with, which typically first appears in young children. Though there has been a lot in the media suggesting various sources of Autism, none of those have been empirically tested and proven to be true.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is NOT a medical condition with treatments to “cure” it. It is represented by differences in the shape and structure of the brain in children with Autism compared to that of neurotypical children.
