Getting answers from babies about autism

Autism emerges over development as a result of complex interactions between genes and the external environment. Progress has been made in identifying biological risk factors and some of the mechanisms through which these factors impact early brain development. We also have better knowledge of emerging behavioral and neural risk signs in infancy, as well as supportive strategies delivered through caregivers to mitigate impact of risk.
