Chicago (PRWEB) April 30, 2010 -- Progress in the scientific understanding of autism and autism spectrum disorder are the subject of a recently published article in the Encyclopaedia Britannica by a leading British researcher in the field.

In “The Autism Spectrum,” Professor Simon Baron-Cohen of the University of Cambridge reviews recent discoveries on the causes, diagnosis and treatment of these conditions, which impair social skills, language and learning ability. The severity of symptoms varies among sufferers, those with strong cases being diagnosed with classic autism, while milder forms are classified as Asperger syndrome.

As director of Cambridge’s Autism Research Centre, Baron-Cohen works at the center of the field. Among the findings he reports on is the significant genetic aspect to autistic disorders, including the higher risk of autistic spectrum conditions among siblings of affected children and abnormalities in the X chromosome that are associated with autism. The report also discusses several forms of special education that are effective in teaching social skills. One interesting method is Lego therapy, using the popular plastic construction toys, which, Baron-Cohen writes, “exploits the child’s strong interest in systems (in this case, constructional systems) to encourage turn taking and social communication.”
