When autism was first identified by Leo Kanner in 1943, he thought it was partially due to "genuine lack of maternal warmth". This "refrigerator mother theory" has been completely discarded and there is now a consensus that there is a connection between genetic heritability and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Although Kanner was the first to publish a work on autism, the disease had already been observed by Hans Asperger in Vienna.
