Autism is on the rise. There are some who are predicting half of all children would be diagnosed with ASD by 2032. What if prevention were possible? If we could decrease and eliminate autism altogether? The interplay of epigenetics and genetics will be explored that lead to increase vulnerability to autism. Action steps will be given so that the a woman may be empowered to take steps to decrease her vulnerability either before she conceives or perinatally.
