Theories on The Cause of Autism

Theories on The Cause of Autism
Theories of cause vary from group to group and from researcher to researcher. As a consequence there is no true consensus as to treatment options or cause.
Some of the theories of cause include;

  • Illness during pregnancy for example rubella (German measles)
  • Lack of oxygen at birth
  • Genetic damage
  • Severe cases of childhood illness such as a whopping cough and measles
  • Vaccination in early childhood (this is a favourite cause for many groups and for good reason)

See our later post for more potential causes of Autism.
