Asperger Syndrome (AS) has, as Dr. Suzanne Lawton so correctly reminds the
reader, baffled Dr. Hans Asperger and baffles parents, children, physicians, and
other health care practitioners, researchers, and others to this day. We cannot
seem to agree on the cause or even, universally, on the diagnosis, much less the
treatment. Auditoriums full of angry, impassioned, sometimes desperate, parents
have gathered to berate the apparent lack of concern on the part of governmental
institutions regarding mercury-laden vaccine preservatives.
