Summary of "Are extremely preterm born children with autism the victims of too much isolation in the incubator?"

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. The history of the discovery and recognition of autism is described in the interesting book: Neurotribes by Steve Silberman (1), This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
