Can they find away to correct this?

Would correcting the problem make the brains of autistic people work more typically?
Neurons from people with autism have an unusual pattern of chemical tags that turn genes on and off, a study of postmortem brains suggests1.

Though preliminary, the results add to mounting evidence that these tags, called methyl groups, contribute to autism, says lead investigator Evan Elliott, assistant professor of molecular and behavioral neuroscience at Bar-Ilan University in Safed, Israel.

More study is needed, but it sounds like more pieces to the puzzle of autism are falling into place.
One day we'll have the complete picture and from that, they'll develop effective treatments and ultimately cures.
I wish that day were today.
Good research.

I pray for a cure while I still can help my son. They say are brains are placid( flexible.) Which means adults can be helped.
