Publisher's Summary

Autism is one of three diagnoses that the DSM-5 includes in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). While our understanding of this condition has grown exponentially, research has been fraught with controversy. Autism appears to be on the rise, depending on how you define it, and its causes more complex than imagined. In Understanding AutismScientific American’s editors have gathered the most current information on autism, including how it’s diagnosed, risk factors, treatments, and therapies.

Poor content of supplied PDF

Although the content is average quality, the attached PDF is very poor quality. The bonus PDF is a fragmented document with missing pages and paragraphs which makes it unreadable at all.
I have contacted the publisher through Audible who ,to my frustration, refused to take any action despite Audible acknowledging that the document is defective.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Audible Australia acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community.
