I just met with a social worker to figure out what options Emma has for funding and I got a discussion about autism I never thought I would have. She told me that autism is not genetic at all and is caused by the environment. In particular she meant the widespread use of electronics in our daily lives is producing toxic chemicals that are causing our children to have developmental disorders. She also mentioned that one city in MN reports a high number of autistic children and that there must be some sort of hidden toxic waste dumped in the city somewhere. You have got to be kidding me. Can we say conspiracy theory? I am just stunned. How on earth do you respond to that?
