From the 1950s through the early 1970s, the American medical establishment thought it had found the cause of autism: poor mothering.

Medicine now knows that autism is a brain disorder, not the result of poor parenting. But for a whole generation of women branded as cold "refrigerator mothers," the damage had already been done
