Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a condition that affects your child’s ability to communicate and interact with others. While the cause of ASD is not always unknown, current research shows that some cases of autism may be linked to genetic conditions, such as Fragile X syndrome, chromosome abnormalities and some forms of epilepsy. Understanding these genetic aspects of autism can help you find the right care for your child.
