Autism — including Asperger’s Syndrome — is a genetically-transmitted, neurological divergence (variation). It occurs at conception and progresses as part of natural fœtal development. You are BORN with Autism. You do not “catch” it.
It is NOT caused by vaccines, infectious diseases or chemicals. It’s caused by one or both biological parents who carry the genetic variation themselves, often undiagnosed for generations.
In this section of the site, you’ll find insights from authoritative sources that explain aspects of what causes Autism, how it’s transmitted from one generation to the next and what medical scientific research and related research is discovering about it.
