Isn't the point of research figuring out what is wrong and how to fix it?

According to this study these researchers have figured out what is wrong. No mention of how they will approach repairing it.
I am not asking for an immediate miracle. I just want a positive approach. I believe stem cells can repair things and crisper can too. There is also gene therpay.

Yes, it is, and they're still discovering what's "wrong".
From what we've been reading, there seems to be a number of things, gene expression etc., associated with autism. That suggests to me that the cause is a combination of things, and that combination may vary in individuals. That may mean that treatments for each individual will vary as well.
Plus, they'll have to be certain that any editing of gene expression doesn't result in negative effects regarding some other function.
Finding solutions for brain related issues won't be easy, but at least they're finding all the pieces to the puzzle.
That's the first step. What can and can't be done with those pieces comes next.

I really doubt high functioning people would have to worry about a cure being forced on them. Even if they were juveniles, legal eagles would come to their defense.

I think autismspeak..org worries about high functioning self absorbed mean people who say we don’t want a cure. Spectrum people lack any empathy.

I'm with you.
At the very least, it would be good to have someone that could take the time to answer your questions without beating around the bush.

I've been hoping and praying for them to say we know what is wrong. It would be nice if, they at least said here is how we think we can approach curing what is wrong.
