Autism was a relatively uncommon disorder occurring in about one in every 2500 children in 1985. Yet, the recent Centers for Disease Control data indicate that in 2010, only 25 years later, the prevalence of this neurodevelopmental disorder rose to one in every 68 children. The physical, emotional, and social challenges faced by these precious children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families can be enormous; the short and long-term cost to society is growing rapidly.
The role of genetics and the contribution of environmental exposures to ASD are being discussed at length in various research articles in the medical literature. Many researchers have also reported success at improving the health of autistic children by incorporating bio-medical approaches into the treatment of this condition. This conference will explore some of the emerging scientific information about the causes, assessment, and potential therapies for children with this challenging disorder.
