by Jed Baker, Ph.D. This award-winning book capitalizes on the fact that people with autism tend to think in pictures and uses that concept to reach young learners. Performance differences between several visual tasks for those with autism spectrum disorders, proposed by a number of studies are attributed to task demands, stimulus paradigms and/ or scale changes in the development of the syndrome, which differentiates performance between children and adults for the same tasks.

There are several conditions associated with autism that stem from mutations in a single gene, including fragile X and Rett syndromes. But less than 1 percent of non-syndromic cases of autism stem from mutations in any single gene.

So far, at least, there is no such thing as an ‘autism gene’ — meaning that no gene is.
