Researchers are providing us with more information on autism – a developmental disorder affecting communication and social interaction adversely affecting a child’s educational performance. And, what they’re learning could be of great benefit to Missouri educators who say they are dealing with a growing problem in our schools.

Doctor Farmer says scientists at the Center are working on both treatments and a cure.
