: You write baloney. No one is diagnosed as autistic from birth. If the definition of autism includes difficulty interacting with others, how the hell can a newborn be diagnosed with it? A diagnosis of autism can't be made until at least 24 months have passed. see
Before you go into rudely insulting anyone again, please get your facts right there are children who are actually diagnosed as autistic from birth.
Autism is widely thought to have only two causes they are, damage AT BIRTH and VIRAL infection.
next time don't be afraid to write your name when you chose to insult somebody that certainly knows a lot more than you so obviously DON'T.
: : Just tonight I received an e-mail from a father who's son was diagnosed as autistic from birth. The father believes lyme was passed on to him in utero. I had never heard of this but the child is well finally after two years of lyme treatment. It makes you wonder doesn't it? Unfortunately no one seems to really know. I don't think we'd be this far without parents and grandparents being so dedicated to this cause.
