Hi Jen. I got to your blog by your comment in NYT. I too am the mother of a son with Asperger's and was drawn to your comments about your son's lack of eye contact from birth (mine too and I think it should be part of the developmental screening test, more on that) and his lack of reaction to vaccines (mine too).
I don't think of my husband and I as rich, but I'm an M.D. by training and my husband is in IT. What is also funny is that many of the comments seem to rant about ASD being a rich white disease (we are black). Anyway, your son looks wonderful. Our son just finished his first year of college. Best of luck!

I also got her by way of NYT Freakonomics blog. :-) I've added your blog to our Autism Blogs Directory (almost 300 listed!) and am looking forward to reading more of your blog.
