Autism and the Environment 101: Online Course 6

Course Objectives

How do we know that more than genetic vulnerability underlies the onset of autism?  Even though research into autism and environment is just starting to receive the funding it needs, we already have studies confirming links between the environment and ASD. The objective of this course is to explore that link, and to examine the suspected toxins and their effect on those with, or at risk for, ASD. We will also discuss the current and future needs for research and treatments in this area.

This course is designed to be helpful to everyone affected by autism, including:

  • Individuals with ASD
  • Parents
  • Family members and friends
  • Physicians
  • Caregivers
  • Therapists
  • Educators
