Whenever my son has a breakdown at school, like he did yesterday, I start looking for an answer. Chances are that maybe this study shows a piece of the puzzle at best.
Anyway, this article on a recent study over at Autism Speaks looked interesting. It may not be the answer for him but perhaps for others.
The article is entitled “Study Suggests Sight and Sound Out of Sync in Some with Autism“. The study is in the Journal of Neuroscience and the abstract can be found here.
Check your local library to see if they have access online or the journal in hard copy.
Food for thought!
