Autism and its related disorders have been poorly understood and misdiagnosed for many years; in fact, until the 1970s, there was a pervasive belief that autism was caused by cold, aloof parenting. Not until the popular movie Rain Man in 1988 did the general public become aware of autism, a developmental disorder that still has no cure.
