Physician's Information on Autism Disability


Autism starts to affect children in the first three years of their lives. It’s a developmental disorder that impairs the child’s communicative and social skills. Related to unusual chemistry and biology in their brains, it’s not yet known what exactly causes these abnormalities. Research has revealed that autism is possibly caused by a combination of factors. One of these factors is genetic. The relatives of autistic children are more likely to have developed language abnormalities and families with autism are more commonly associated with chromosomal abnormalities. Other suspected causes of autism include mercury poisoning, digestive tract changes, vaccine sensitivity, and diet. In most cases, parents will notice the symptoms of autism when the child is around one and a half to two years old. Here are some resources on autism disability.
