There is an urgent need for increased knowledge about all aspects of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), from identifying risk factors, to understanding underlying biology, to developing new more effective treatments, to bringing evidence based practices into the community.

To comprehend the current state of ASD research and begin to plan next steps, Congress requested an annual update of scientific advances. This book is a summary on the advances in autism spectrum disorder research that has been ongoing from calendar years 2007 through 2011.
