    Thank you for your powerful and moving letter. We certainly did not mean to dismiss the challenges of families with a child who has more severe symptoms than Ms. Wineman—or to suggest that autism can simply be overcome with effort. Still, your point is well taken, and we thank you for pointing out the difficulties many families face. We will make sure to keep this in mind when reporting on autism in the future.
