If you are interested in a more thorough discussion of the recent Baron-Cohen autism article, you can find more about it here and here. These links are to a blog by Kristina Chews entitled, "My Son has Autism." It is a moving and beautiful discussion of her relationship with her son, Charlie. It also details some of her struggles and concerns about identifying the cause of Charlie's autism.
On a personal note, my nephew, age 2, was recently diagnosed with autism so it is a topic in which I have developed a great and increasing interest as we work to find the best way to help support him and his parents. [bm]
