Abstract

Autism defies the entire world and has still not yet delivered all its secrets. For this reason, it is the subject matter of many different ideologies, treatments, debates and qualifications, which often do not thoroughly consider advances in international research.
There are no borders in autism; it touches upon all social classes in different countries around the world.
This is why the association VAINCRE L’AUTISME and its scientific committee wish to put forth the current state of international scientific knowledge on autism through the publication of this White Paper, which consolidates leading scientific research on autism from around the world.
The objectives of this international and scientific document are to provide current data from science and medicine in the subject of autism, to be a document of quality and a reference, and to be informative and comprehensible for everyone. It is intended to be useful and accessible to all, from individuals and families touched by autism, to European and international governmental bodies.
We intend for this document to be widely used and to be translated into different languages in order to bring about an international collective awareness of autism, as is the case for all serious conditions of public health concern worldwide.
We express our heartfelt gratitude to the different researchers and clinicians who contributed to this document, which is of interest to public health and to the enhancement of the human condition without borders.
