: 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.
Since you didn't post your name, I don't know who I am replying to, but my son is autistic, he is 16yr. old and has been autistic since birth and I believe he was autistic in utero. You shouldn't say something is baloney unless you know what you are talking about. Thank You!
