"In Sean's case, his Angelman was suspected by a psychologist who evaluated him at an autism clinic when he was 2. Angelman is often misdiagnosed as autism, because some of the associated features of Angelman -- for example, hand-flapping movements, or deficits in expressive language -- overlap with certain features of autism."

Makes you wonder just how many kids are misdiagnosed. Thi child would be too, had it not been for one doctor.

Which goes back to the misdiagnosis, which could include many and why the rates increased regardless of vaccines.

I don't answer questions of a person who isn't serious and makes jokes about every topic.

And yet again, more name calling. That's your evidence. You hide begind it. If it was serious to you, you wouldn't behave the way you do or spam every one with spam. No one but you behaves poorly. If you ever had something other than name-calling to debate..... but you don't. You're never serious about the autism topic.
