We’re appreciative of the excellent article, “Warning Signs: How Pesticides Harm the Young Brain,” in your March 31 issue. This is excellent, important research, and beautifully reported. Believing that there is a place for a lower budget but higher numbers version of such research linking environmental exposures to important child outcomes, we are collecting information from parents of children on the autism spectrum. We’re asking for participation of large numbers of parents. Perhaps some readers and certainly many of their friends are in this category. Our questionnaires are at www.mappingautism.com. Participation can be helpful in finding answers. Research is approved by the institutional review board of The Wright Institute, Berkeley, CA. Emily Diamond, Psy.D. James M. Diamond, M.D.
