Knowledge Path: Autism Spectrum Disorders
This knowledge path about autism spectrum disorders (ASD) has been compiled by the Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Library at Georgetown University. It offers a selection of current, high-quality resources about ASD identification and intervention, and it includes resources about biomedical research into the causes of ASD; resources that address the communication, education, and vocational challenges of autism; and resources about autism's impact on family life. Separate sections identify resources about autism and environmental health research as well as those that address concerns about vaccines. This knowledge path for health professionals, educators, researchers, policymakers, and families will be updated periodically.
