Cracking the Autism EnigmaAutism, once a rarely observed and often misunderstood psychiatric disorder, has become one of today's most urgent public health challenges. Scientific research is revealing that specific genes and brain developmental processes are involved. Such revelations are redefining our understanding of this once enigmatic disorder offering hope to families with autism for new treatments.
