Comparative Effectiveness of Therapies for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders
Background: Autism Spectrum Disorders (1 of 2)
Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are common neurodevelopmental disorders. ASDs have multiple etiologies involving both genetic and environmental risk factors. Among the environmental risk factors that may contribute to ASD risk are advanced parental age and prematurity. Disorders within the autism spectrum include autistic disorder, Asperger syndrome, and pervasive developmental disorder–not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS).
