Autism associations

Regarding genetic and developmental syndromes

Today I took some hours to look at associated genetic developmental syndromes. I looked at studies from 2004 to the present , they were easy to find, there have been a lot of studies done which mention autism as associated to these syndromes, some of which are quite rare. If there was any question that autism is developmental or genetic in origin, perhaps this will be informative.

Search any of these scientifically and medically defined syndromes by name and add “autism” to the search key words for as much information as you can handle. The studies are there in significant numbers.

List from this morning’s work. Any diagnosis can be “stand alone” or it can be “co morbid”, these seem to be associated with autism often enough to have been mentioned in over 24 studies I used to compile these associated syndromes. I am sure there will be more if I continue the search and study. Do you have, or do you know anybody who has one or more of these syndromes and is/are also autistic?
