No, first they need a reliable test for autism, which we are a long way from that.

i'm not sure I agree. Autism is a spektrum it's not like Hep A where you have it or you don't. No 2 individuals are the same on the spektrum.

My son is on it, and I would not want to 'cure' him or change a thing, he is perfect in my eyes.

now, that being said, anything that can lead to earlier diagnosis is huge. Tremendous strides can be made the earlier a diagnosis is.

My son is very high functioning relative to many on the spektrum this is my opinion only. No idea if other parents would agree or not.

Autism doesn't require a cure.
It requires better understanding from the rest us.
