Letter To The Editor: Reader appreciates editorial on autism

Jacksonville Daily Progress

JACKSONVILLE — I wanted to tell you that your Editorial on Autism was one of the best I have ever read.

It was well written, concise, and frankly very shocking. I think all newspapers should re-print it for their readers.

I have no personal experience with Autism other than a few clients with Autistic children, but I am very concerned and recognize that the playing field has changed since I had my own children over three decades ago,where this condition was practically unheard of.

I have sent your article to an environmental journalist friend in Arkansas to read. She has, for many years worked on issues concerning water quality, etc.

 I thank you for this very commendable ef-fort.
