What’s the biggest misconception about autism?
Here are some of the biggest misconceptions about autism:1.
Autism is a disease that affects only one group of people.
It doesn’t affect everyone in the population.
It’s the same people who have autism, it’s just a different subgroup of them.2.
It affects only boys and girls, and it’s a genetic disease.
Autism affects the brains of everyone, not just boys and men.3.
Autism can be passed from one person to another, as long as they have the right genes.
Some people have multiple genes that affect autism, and some don’t.4.
There are more autism genes in women than in men.
There’s also evidence that men and women have more differences in autism than women do.5.
Autism isn’t a physical problem.
There is no physical evidence linking autism to autism.
It can be caused by environmental factors, or genetic factors.6.
There aren’t any known cures for autism.
The only way to stop the spread of autism is to stop treating people with autism.
The bottom line: This isn’t something to be taken lightly.
It is not a “preventable” disease.
It isn’t caused by something in the environment, or by some kind of faulty gene.
It exists, and there are things you can do to help prevent it.
But there are also things you don’t want to do, and things you should still do to stop it from happening.
