Bartholomew Cubbins on Autism

http://photos1.blogger.com/img/243/6648/320/bcubbins1.jpg

As a scientist and a parent of a child on the spectrum, I wear many hats thoughout the day. I believe the pursuit of understanding the roots of autism and other neurological disorders affecting children to be one of the most important things one might do with their professional and free time. Comments and debate are welcome, abuse is not.
