The key to treating people with autism is to understand the environmental and biological factors that cause the disorder to develop. This requires focused study on the origin (etiology) of the disorder and the open-mindedness to consider all possible sources. Our research closely examines each piece of the puzzle to try and uncover underlying causes. As educators, we share our findings with the community and use our knowledge to help families receive effective care.
