Why Autism More Common in Boys than Girls
Dr. Joseph Buxbaum explains that autism is more common in boys than in girls. He provides a possible explanation for why this is true for some forms of autism, but also states that we do not fully understand why boys appear more vulnerble to autism than girls generally.
"Autism is more common in boys than girls. I don't think we fully understand the reasons."
