Autism, or autism spectrum disorder ASD, refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication, as well as by unique strengths and differences. We now know that there is not one autism but many types, caused by different combinations of genetic and environmental influences. The term “spectrum” reflects the wide variation in challenges and strengths possessed by each person with autism. ​

CFAR researchers, in collaboration with scientists and physicians at KFSH&RC, as well as local and international experts, conduct advanced research that aim to help uncover the mysteries of Autism, discover early diagnostic methods, and collect accurate data pertaining to its prevalence and progression locally and regionally.
