Book excerpt: There is a near hysteria over dramatic increases in autism prevalence at a time when we still don't know what causes the disorder and have no known cures. More and more money is being poured into autism research with conflicting research findings, none of which appear to be getting us closer to prevention or treatment. This book carefully examines the psychology, neuroscience, genetic, and medical research findings to date from autism research and provocatively suggests that what we've labeled "autism" is several different disorders, and the way forward for more effective research for prevention and treatment. Autism is a massive worldwide problem with increasing prevalence rates, now thought to be as high as 1 in 38 children (Korea) and 1 in 100 children (CDC- US) Autism is the 3rd most common developmental disability. 400,000 people in the US alone have autism Autism effects entire brain including communication, social behavior, reasoning and is lifelong There is no known cause and no cure Funding for Autism research quadrupled from 1995 to 2000 up to $45m, and the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee has recommended $1billion funding from 2010-2015
