The American Psychiatric Association proposes that, “advanced paternal age, low birth weight, or fetal exposure to valproate [medication], may contribute to the risk of autism spectrum disorder” (APA, 2013, p. 56). Although there are no clear answers, families, and particularly pregnant mothers, are wise to consider the environmental impact on risk for autism. It may be important, in many cases, to avoid foods treated with pesticides and other chemicals, particularly if other genetic or familial concerns are present (having a sibling with autism for example).
Some researchers have found higher rates of recovery, even over 50 %, with intensive best-practice intervention such as the Early Start Denver Model (Rogers, 2015). , 2007) in part because of the criteria used to deﬁne optimal outcomes. Helt et al. , 2008, p. 340). , 2007, p. 100). Even for children who qualify as recovered, it is commonly seen that approximately 50 % often have persisting psychiatric problems not present in neurotypical peers. , 2008). , 2010, p. 527). , 2010). What factors lead to optimal outcomes and how do clinicians and parents go about the process of fostering these factors in the children who are capable of making great contributions to our world and are held back by a mix of challenging symptoms?
2013). It is promising that some features of autism are not related in the research to outcomes. , 2013). Thus, even families who may see scarce hope for their child’s prospect of recovery are well advised to remember that optimal outcomes do exist. Fortunately, 25 Intelligence Fig. 1 Primary predictors of optimal outcomes Early language skills Early cognitive skills Early Intervention Optimal Outcomes researchers have made signiﬁcant progress in outcome research. Below is a description of the three variables the authors ﬁnd are most signiﬁcantly associated with optimal outcomes (Fig.
