About this event:

There is currently no other worldwide challenge area in the field of special education that has received the vast attention seen by the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Despite this large amount of attention, none of it explains the reason why the ASD diagnosis has continually been increasing at such an alarming rate. Currently, there is no known cause for the disorder. This lecture will describe the history of ASD and will explore suspected causes. The current types of intervention that are being prescribed for the problems associated with ASD, namely a lack of social and language skills, will also be discussed.
