The Autism Gene-CBS News Video

Being a mom with 2 autistic boys and actively involved in finding a cure for autism or even a link to what causes autism so I can help my boys it is exciting to hear news about a possible link in genes that may be able to help families.

It has always been aВ concern of mine for my boys and their future families. We have 3 sons and 2 of them have been diagnosed with Autism. I wonder everyday why 2 of my sons have autism and why my other son doesn’t? What caused it? I hear about vaccines causing it? Diets causing it? Yet it can all be very confusing…and intimidating…

Now here is the video from CBS News seen on The Early Show on Wednesday April 29, 2009:

“One of the most heartbreaking aspects of autism is that no one really knows why it happens. New research offers some important clues for families struggling with autism. Dr. Jennifer Ashton reports.”
