autism spectrum disorders

Researchers are growing increasingly aware that the prenatal period and early childhood are exquisitely sensitive to external insults such as environmental contaminants.

A veteran journalist offers context and tips for reporting on controversial proposed changes to how autism is diagnosed in the United States.

Institute, or Medical Investigation of Neurological Disorders. She worked with and studied children with autism spectrum disorders since 1991. Prior to coming to UC Davis, she completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Minnesota Medical School in the department of pediatric neurology. While at the University of Minnesota, she was instrumental in establishing the multidisciplinary Autism Spectrum Disorders Clinic.
