Autism Committee Lets Down Community

From the Age of Autism. Managing Editor's Note: "Six years and almost a billion dollars later, Insel Insel Dr. Kinghas not only failed to produce even one medical intervention or recommendation to prevent or treat autism, the autism rate has DOUBLED on his watch."

Imagine if children were developing life threatening cancer at the rate of 1 in 54 boys -- and in six years with almost a billion dollars the committee had failed to stem the tide, refused to look at causation or prevention, and instead spent a good portion of its time diligently dickering over the curtain colors at hospice? What can Tom Insel say to the families of the fallen children - many of them born after Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) was installed?  IACC is failing the autism community.
