Who is this idiot doctor Ploeger anyways???Is anyone as pissed off as me that she could conclude such a thing? Neither of my autistic children,(nor, really any I know)have these such "deformaties"! How many typical children have protruding ears and "peculiar" toes/feet? What the hell does a "peculiar" foot look like anyway??? Oh and I suppose that this doctor is the only genius out there that is going to tell a mother that had a few ciggarettes beforeshe even knew she was pregnant, has caused her childs autism?! When will this madness stop? When will the people that deserve the blame step up an take responsibilty for their actions?

Where did this crackpot get her degree? I don't have a degree, and I know that autistic children like my son have different symptoms, and as for physical abnormalities such a peculiar toes--thats a load of hogwash. Quite frankly it's another ignorant excuse to blame the mother, and another example of discrimination against folks suffering from autism and their families. These so-called experts need to reprimanded.
