(1) If MMR vaccine causes autism, which is given at 12 months, how can it retroactively/preemptively cause symptoms at 6 months of age? And actually, in fetus stage, differences in brain growth are already observed.

(2) Starting to teach your children to read at 9 months of age is not early: it's late. Same thing with drawing pictures for your children.

Well I guess clueless parents can murder their autistic children at a much earlier age now. :roll:

A comment made in extremely bad taste.

The first link redirected me to something unrelated.

It's a news article, so the link probably expired pretty fast. Here is another one:
https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/08/170829113830.htm

And here is an earlier, unrelated article in Scientific American:
https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/autism-starts-months-before-symptoms-appear-study-shows/
But a new study suggests there is evidence of autism in the brain even earlier—well before a child’s first birthday—and that the signs can be seen on a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. “We’re learning that there are biological changes that occur at [the time] or before the symptoms start to emerge,” says Geraldine Dawson, a clinical psychologist and autism researcher at Duke University who was not involved in the new work. “It’s the ability to detect autism at its very earliest stages that’s going to allow us to intervene before the full syndrome is manifest.”

I noticed something was different about my son at 3 months of age. I thought he may have been hearing impaired. So, I tested it out by standing on each side of him with his rattle. Each time, he responded on the appropriate side but his eyes looked like he was just somewhere else and not with me. Something just wasn't quite right. He's almost 19 now and I remember that day like it was yesterday. He no longer has that look about him. It went away at puberty.
Personally, I don't believe that shots cause aspergers or autism. I believe that people are simply changing.
