Autism is reaching epidemic proportions in this country and the world. To give you an idea of just how fast it’s growing, the U.S. population grew by 13% during the 1990s, disabilities grew at a rate of 16%, and autism grew at a rate of 172%! According to the Autism Society, within 10 years, the annual costs associated with care for individuals with autism will be $200–$400 billion dollars. Today, at least one out of 150 children born in the United States will develop autism. (In certain parts of the country, those rates are estimated to be 1 out of 100. Some predict that if by the year 2020 we do not make signifi­cant changes, 1 in every 10 children will be affected by autism. That’s why it’s so important to understand the predisposing factors that play a role in its develop­ment. With that understanding, we can not only help to recover those who are already affected, but can also help to prevent future cases and stem the tide of this epidemic.


Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.
