Rethinking Autism: Variation and Complexity by Dr. Lynn Waterhouse reviews the scientific research on causes, symptomology, course, and treatment done to date, and draws the potentially shocking conclusion that “autism” does not exist as a single disorder.
“Autism Symptoms Exist but the Disorder Remains Elusive” is the the 8th, and last, chapter in this book. We invite you to read through the chapter below, and let us know what you think!
Dr. Waterhouse believes that only by ceasing to think of autism as a single disorder can we ever advance research to more accurately parse why these symptoms occur and what the different and varied causes may be.
