Last Friday 15th we made a meeting with all members of our staff.
Firstly, we emphasized we are currently 23 members. We haven’t reached this number before!
That means we are doing a great job that is making our project grow. Congratulations team!
What do we now nowadays about autism? And what do we not know...
Internet is an infinite resource that offers immeasurable amounts of bibliography concerning ASD. Having such amount of resources can lead you sometimes to useless contents or not verified articles.
From Planeta Imaginario Foundation we want to suggest you some bibliography scientifically contrasted that we consider as a useful guide for parents and professionals about ASD.
At present it is not clear exactly what variables cause a repertory of behaviours consistent with a diagnosis of ASD3
There are probably many factors that contribute to the development and appearance of autism. Some are present at the moment of the child’s birth (genetic factors), while there may also be some environmental factors that contribute. Everything seems to indicate that there is a convergence of variables that come together in a child set off a chain reaction of symptoms. What does seem clear is that the risk of having autism increases if a member of the family has already been diagnosed. Finally it is important to emphasize that research has shown that the style of parenting is not a genuine cause, and nor is autism caused by vaccines.
