Read the most advanced science of autism causes here. Bypass the commenterati and go direct to the science. Don't waste your time at the sites which pretend "no-one" knows what causes (or what sometimes cures) autism.
This is a website relating to the unchallenged theory of autism, IQ and genius, Personality and Individual Differences 14:459-482 (1993) by Robin P Clarke (the antiinnatia theory). An update review paper is being prepared for publication. Meanwhile you can download the original 1993 publication (presentationally revised) here, and the original 1993 publication (author's reprint) here . (the journal site version is here:, but without added charts of social class and you may have to pay Elsevier $31.)

Age of Onset graph

First graph is from the Autism Research Institute (though named "Institute for Child Behavior Research" during most of this graph). Second is my re-working to show the changing ratio of age of onset. How easily is this data compatible with no increase?


  1. You made some excellent points there. I did a search about the topic and barely found any specific details on other websites, but then great to be here, seriously, appreciate that.

  2. Well, I'm trying to make the content here strictly scientific, as would be fit to be in a scientific journal, and avoid the endless gossiping and partisan point-scoring etc that characterises some others.
    Meanwhile I think the study of many subjects is weakened by the following processes. Students-researchers are trained to learn quantity of facts, and indeed are selected on the basis of quantity of facts, mindless of any meaning to them. There's no shortage of facts of unclear significance. Myself, ss I don't have much of a memory for loads of facts, I try to instead identify information that actually tells us something important beyond itself. And I'd suggest that the ARI's chart of the changing ratios is a prime example. And even more when you consider that that change comes immediately in the wake of the major change of dental amalgams, and that it appears that it may not have happened in Poland (at same rate).
