What families with autism ask most often

Geneticist Wendy Chung opens a TED Talk called Autism—what we know (and what we don’t know yet) with one question: Why?

“Why is a question parents ask me all the time,” she says in the TED Talk, which I watched on April 30 to cap off the end of Autism Acceptance Month. Chung is a geneticist at the Simons Foundation and is working to characterize behavior, brain structure and function in people with genetic variations that may relate to autism. That all may sound pretty complicated and sophisticated, but trust me, her talk is easy to understand.

In a very short amount of time, Wendy Chung shares what she does know about autism spectrum disorders and explains what she and her team have learned about autism through studies, treatments and, especially, listening and observing people who have autism. Check this TED Talk out.
