It is also a spectrum disorder, which means it can occur in a variety of forms and intensity. Recent years have marked a startling rise in the number of children diagnosed as autistic. Yet much remains unknown about autism, and controversy surrounds everything from defining the disease to diagnosing it to treating it, with theories about its cause ranging from vaccines to genetics. The A to Z of Autism Spectrum Disorders provides a much-needed, user-friendly reference guide to this disease. More than 300 entries address the types of autism, causes and treatments, institutions, associations, leading scientists and research, social impact, and much more.

Appendixes include major relevant organizations, sources for further reading and research, a glossary, and a bibliography. Entries include Aspergers Syndrome, atypical autism, developmental disability, early intervention program, genes and autism, high-functioning autistic, individualized education program, language delay, main-streaming, nonfluent aphasia, safety issues, tactile defensiveness, and vitamins and autism.
