There is no cure for autism and it is not a disease.

Autism is a lot more complicated than how you are making it out to be. They have sensitivities to certain things (sounds, smells, touch) rather than it being an allergy. An allergy and a sensitivity are TWO VERY DIFFERENT THINGS!

By calling Autism a disease, you are effectively alienating them more than they are already.

I agree with Amy that Autism is not a disease (I'm not sure if syndrome is the right word to describe it) but I like the way Sigoisette have outlined the symptoms.

Autism is present at birth, signs of the disorder can be difficult to identify or diagnose during infancy. Parents often become concerned when their toddler does not like to be held; does not seem interested in playing certain games, such as peekaboo; and does not begin to talk.
