Widespread reports of severe medical conditions being attributed, without investigation and sometimes without physical examination, to 'autism behaviours' have compelled the creation of this document in order
to present relevant information to healthcare providers, policy makers and the wider audience. A summary of current research, including the positions of leading governmental and professional bodies, is hoped and expected to help bridge the knowledge and training gap, and as a consequence, decrease the premature attribution of physical symptoms to 'autism behaviours'.
