Autism and other challenges on the Autism Spectrum (ASD) can arise from various factors including in some circumstances a lack of oxygen or other brain trauma during the course of a baby's birth. Brain injury can also arise from the care a baby received in the newborn or neonatal period when for example there may be an imbalance in the levels of sugars. Where blood sugars become low, a condition called hypoglycaemia arises and if this is not treated quickly, brain injury may also arise.
