Summary
This handbook provides an overview of the current scientific understanding of autism spectrum disorders, as well as a cultural and historical perspective on the controversies that plague the field. Autism and its related disorders have been poorly understood and misdiagnosed for many years; in fact, until the 1970s, there was a pervasive belief that autism was caused by cold, aloof parenting. Not until the popular movie Rain Man in 1988 did the general public become aware of autism, a developmental disorder that still has no cure. "Autism" describes a complex developmental disability that interferes with social interaction and communication. Symptoms of autism are generally recognizable when children are under the age of three. Until the 1990s, rates for autism were generally estimated at 1 in 2500. In 2010, however, the estimate is now 1 in 110 children. Is the incidence of autism increasing, or has there simply been a shift in how often this disability is diagnosed as the problem? This text provides an explanation of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). It educates readers about ASD, highlighting current understanding of etiology, neuroscience, and intervention. It also discusses the historical and cultural influences of ASD and explores the controversial aspects of autism
