    From what I have read, I thought you already knew why autism happens. Are there other reasons? Is this age thing valid?

    There are MANY reasons why autism happens, nearly all from our modern life. Maternal age, antibiotics, vaccines, various diets (including high fructose corn syrup, food dyes, etc.) have all been implicated. I believe that it is a combination of these factors that cause autism.

    Interesting! I think it may happen from too much electronic stimuli and not enough maternal/paternal stimuli. So many autistic kids LOVE computers.
