Organizing Brain of Individuals with ASD

Everybody's brains are different and certainly, the autistic brain connects in an unorthodox manner. Autism is not curable, but there are many language strategies the speech language pathologist can do to assist in organizing the brains of people with autism.
It is my theory that people with autism do not cross hemispheres of the brain, from left to right. This doesn't mean that people with autism don't use both hemispheres, but they can't connect the hemispheres so that they interact the way most brains do in typical developing peers. This can be seen especially in verbal children and adults with autism.
