Aetiology of Autism: Focus on the Biological Perspective.
Mackowiak, Monika
Early Child Development and Care, v160 p77-84 Feb 2000
Examines the biological factors underlying autism, focusing on research in four areas: (1) neurological abnormalities; (2) biochemical abnormalities; (3) genetic problems; and (4) problems during pregnancy or birth. Maintains that autism is a heterogeneous disorder and that there is no unified model that explains its etiology. (Author/KB)
