It is a complicated issue with many factors such as genetic and environmental. Look for lists of these and try to eliminate them all. Examples:
vaccines, pesticides and chemicals in soaps and shampoos, chemicals in the house (carpet, clothes, couch), water (chlorine, fluoride), air,
electromagnetic, emotional trauma, food allergies, etc.
There is a downward spiral of interactions of the gut, immune system, and brain. The intestinal barrier can break down due to many causes during
development, and parasites and yeast can create openings in the lining that allow food particles to pass through. The immune system responds to these
as threats and creates an allergy and inflammatory response that affects the brain.
You need to test for many things. Search around to find reasonable priced and thorough testing. One example is Genova labs. You may have to or want
to go to a naturopathic doctor and have them order the testing.
1) Heavy metals - urine test ~ $100 Genova
2) Food allergies - IgE and IgG ~ $100
3) Food allergies simpler test -
IgG ELISA and uses a finger-prick blood sample and a home test available from Yorktest
4) Intestinal barrier assesment (Leaky Gut)
5) Fungus/parasites stool test
"Dr Lyons has found it amazing how many kids with brain –related difficulties have intestinal parasites. Identifying and then eliminating them can
often bring about very clear benefits."
6) Comprehensive Metabolic Analysis (blood draw) - can tell you a lot
If they were vaccinated, it is more complicated. 1 in 150 have a genetic predisposition such that vaccines will cause late-onset autism due to the
mercury, aluminum, squalene adjuvent, and stealth viruses. You can find research articles showing that cilantro naturally chelates out mercury, but
that is only one step. Probably, removing harms, lowering inflamation, addressing gut and digestion issues, etc., all need to be address
simultaneously. Essential fatty acids and digestive enzymes have been shown to help with speech delays. Also some process vitamin B-12 differently
and need a methylated version to absorb it.
Important new theory, and comprehensive medical treatment protocol
"Autism is caused by a medical illness in which the brain’s immune system (microglia) attack the connections in the brain. This leads to
developmental delays that can cause significant social, communication and behavioral problems."

Keep trying to find parents and experts that have had success. You have to accept some things, but try to find and address the cause(s), as well as
treating the symptoms with therapies: speech, behavior, occupational, neurosensory, restoring or fortifying the gut and immune system. Most of the
things you can do, such as testing, dietary changes, and therapies, are not harmful and can only help.
Don't confuse accepting what you can't change with giving up. It can't yet be proven that it is purely genetic for your case, and so there could
be a cause that can be addressed. All you can do is to do your best, but this means full time work as there are a lot of resources out there to sort
through and filter.
Best wishes and good luck
