Do you capitalize autism?

I don’t believe that you capitalize the word autism unless it is at the beginning of a sentence or in a title! ! Any Suggestions here?

    List the edition you are referring to in parentheses, followed by a period. all words in the title other than articles should appear with the first letter capitalized. Autism is a developmental disorder that is generally diagnosed in childhood. Source:http://www.ehow.com/how_7201982_reference-dsm-iv.html

    Do you capitalize autism? Not unless it starts the sentence. When do you capitalize the word ‘at’? At is capitalized when it is the first word of a sentence.

    We have never heard about such institutions. SVM: I know of one, but it had just three children and I believe it closed down.

    They could be brought, yes! In the Bahamas – like in the UK or the US – prosecutors have very broad discretion as to what they charge!Whether a conviction could be obtained is a different matter! The possible charges – Negligent homicide or Child Neglect – both require that the defendant have acted in a manner that he knew, or should have known was likely to result in harm to the child! The Travoltas are Scientologists! As such they do not believe that Autism exists! Since they do not believe that Autism exists, it follows that they could not be held to know that not treating it could lead to harm! The Travoltas were giving their son a cocktail of vitamins and minerals sold by the Church of Scientology to treat a church diagnosed syndrome supposedly caused by smelling a carpet cleaner when he was a baby! (Contrary to the poster above, it is not a prescription medication, nor was it administered by a licensed doctor)Medications are available that a medical doctor would have believed could have controlled his seizures, but the Travoltas simply dont believe in the existance of the disease that caused the seizures, so they made a decision, based in their own beliefs, to withhold those medications! That, legally speaking, is not *negligent*! If they believed that the anti-seizure medication would have prevented Jetts seizures, and simply didnt bother to give it to him, thats negligent! Not giving him anti-seizure medication because they truly believed it wouldnt stop the seizures, is not negligent!While this may seem whacko to reasonable people, negligence charges must be prosecuted in the light of what the *parents* believed at the time! If they truly believed that what they were doing was best for their son then they were not negligent, even if any doctor would have said it was quackery with no basis in science or medicine!Richard
