This article was just published in Scientific American.  It points to the great progress that scientists have made in mapping the genes that lead to autism.

It also points to the fact that the more we know, the more we don’t know.

At some point in the not too distant future, it may be possible for kids to hbig dataave a genetic correction to mitigate the affects of autism.  Probably not for another 20 years, but progress is being made.

“If we ever saw a self-correcting defect in two mutations in autism,” Wigler says, “I would stand up and cheer.”
