The medical research community is focusing on the possibility that children may be genetically vulnerable to many different intrusions; for example a recent article in the November 'Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine" indicated that autism rates in a group of children born in California, Oregon, and Washington between the years 1987 and 1999 were related to precipitation rates. This study would suggest that there may be specific environmental triggers for autism. Comment from Dr. Ron...The medical community has focused on the concept of "genetic vulnerability" in children and here is another report. Certainly this study is of interest and we need many more connecting studies to find the "cause and result"; I find it of interest that there could be connection between autism and rainfall. scratch

I was intriged by the article that connected rainfall and autism so I did some research; it appears the researchers are not proposing that autism is related to rain (as I had thought when I read the first report) and snow, but that it may be related to indoor activities or exposures that increase during bad weather. Whatever that means!!!! So what are they saying; well perhaps less sunshine could mean there could be vitamin D deficiency or other triggers. All in all these studies are important in research however they have little impact on our present state of affairs for thoes of us working within the Autistic Spectrum Disorder group. Dr. Ron
