Latest research findings?

I admit, I've been occupied with other aspects of my life and have not been actively reading any information about Autism.  Has anyone read anything interesting lately as far as the latest theory on the cause of Autism or any genetic links?  I used to receive emails from Science Daily at work but my email address changed and I've yet to update it.  While reading is informative, I'd like to be able to get feedback from other Moms or Dads living with Autism on a daily basis.  

So what's new?

Welcome to the group!  I honestly don't make time to read things about Autism...I just focus on daily life, helping my son to function and be happy.  That's all I really care about:)

Yeah I don't find the articles helpful to my daily life. No one knows Tyler's needs more than us. But, I do like to stay tuned to what's being done and I find it interesting.

I was never a science fan... Ok, chemistry and a little physics... (Basic) but after that blah! Lol

The reasons why my son is on the spectrum dont interest me... Dont get me wrong - when the figure it out, i care... But i like to spend my reading time on how to help him... Diet, Behavioral challemges, sensory challenges are so hard. I just want to better understand his experience.

im also afraid that cause is something I did wrong... Lol...so I prefer to bury my head on that front until the answer is absolutely known....

I hope you find an interesting article. :)

Yes, I heard that too.  The theory is the drug(s) they used to either enduce labor or during labor could have had effects on the infants brain development if the baby was not fully developed, like enduced really early.  Which would explain why a lot of children on the spectrum were premies.

Tyler was enduced at 34 weeks and only weighed 4.5 lbs.  They gave me pitocin and a lot of magnesium.  Makes me wonder...
