Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Autism, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and other neurodevelopmental, learning, and behavioral disorders may by some estimates affect as many as 1 in 6 U.S. children?or some 12 million children?according to a U.S. Census Bureau report published in the journal Pediatrics in 1993. The consequences of these disorders can be tragic, their familial, societal, and economic costs immense, and the resulting disabilities lifelong. While exposure to certain environmental chemicals is recognized or suspected of causing neurodevelopmental deficits, the origins of most of these disorders are still unknown. Today scientists are focused on investigating the possibility that at least some of the brain disorders that affect many children are produced when environmental triggers interact with genes in susceptible individuals.
