Regarding "The Worlds of Autism" (Oct. 6): The article was very informative but there is so much emphasis on autism. I have a handicapped child who has cri-du-chat. She is 23 years old and she is still in diapers and her food has to be pureed. She has the mental ability of a 3-year-old. She has to have total care.
So when I see articles and TV programs on autism, I want people to know there are syndromes other than autism that should be focused on. Give the other families a chance to tell their stories.
