I've often wondered if some forms of Autism are actually advancement mutations in the human brain that the body isn't prepared for.

Thanks for sharing. Such an awesome story.

My wife is a resource teacher at our local elementary school and works with kids who have special needs. She has several students with Autism and i get to hear first hand the struggles these kids have.
