Saying it is linked to Autism, infers that anyone with Autism is prone to be violent. That is clearly not the case.

******************************

Perhaps not, but the article does go on to say that a recent study concludes that “The prevalence of and risk factors for aggression were examined in 1,380 children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Prevalence was high, with parents reporting that 68 percent had demonstrated aggression to a caregiver and 49 percent to non-caregivers.”

When people don’t think they’re getting their views across, they get upset. This surfaces in elderly people too.

Is this aggression evidenced by cursing or physical abuse?
