Q. Is it a birth defect in children?

I know about the causes of autism. Is it a birth defect in children?

A2Unfortunately, science has not been able to give us the solid answers we would like on this issue and there is a great deal of controversy surrounding it. There are many organizations; however they have dedicated themselves to finding the answers. An online search of autism causes will give you many links to the various organizations.
