    What is autism?

    Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a condition that affects social interaction, communication, interests and behaviour. It includes Asperger syndrome and childhood autism.

    What causes autism?

    The causes of ASD can be described in two ways:

    • Primary ASD (also known as idiopathic ASD) ? where no underlying factors can be identified to explain why ASD has developed.
    • Secondary ASD ? where an underlying medical condition or environmental factor thought to increase the risk of ASD is identified.


    Should the causes’ of autism be studied in order for people to have a better understanding of why, either themselves or their child has the disorder?

    Is there enough support for people who have autism?
