A question hit me the other day: has much research been done on the likelihood of a self-injurious autistic child’s developing CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy)?  I find only a few, footnote-like mentions on the internet, which is odd because once it finally occurred to me, the connection seemed obvious, important, and–that rarest of qualities–useful. I need to learn so much more about this. Anybody have any thoughts? Thanks.  –Nancymother child
