Migration and Autism Spectrum Disorder: Population-based Study

Published August 1, 2012 in The British Journal of Psychiatry

Results of this study show that while children of migrant parents are at an increased risk of low-functioning autism, they are at a decreased risk for high-functioning autism. Researchers call for further research to determine if environmental factors associated with migration influence the development of autism.
