Causes and Risks for Autism $69.00
Authors: Alessia C. Giordano and Viola A. Lombardi 
Book Description:
The terms ‘autism’ and ‘autistic’ derive from the Greek word autos meaning self. This is appropriate to describing the autistic behavioral phenotype in which there is a pathological impairment in socialization and verbal and nonverbal communication, in addition to behavior and interests that are often highly restricted and repetitive. The autistic individual often appears isolated, and unable to make sense of the world around them. They often reveal an inability to predict and understand the behavior of others, and perceptions of the world remain fragmented and are not embedded into a coherent pattern or structure. This book discusses the causes and risks of autism from researchers around the globe.
