: 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
: : 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.
REPLY: I've been gone a few days, didn't know you were vehement in questioning. If you re-read what I posted, I said I wasn't good at 'precisely defining' the Kanner's classic, etc. and also I refined my first answer by proposing an 'accident in utero' as 'a cause' of Kanner's classic. TNX for the web site referral, I'll certainly read it. Grandma Peg
