Autism and folic acid

I believe that too much folic acid during the first few months of pregnancy may be a cause of autism. It makes sense when you stop to think about it. Pregnant women are advised to take a folic acid supplement and it's added to many foods. I have a child with spina bifida, so when I became pregnant wit my fourth child I took more than the daily recommended amount of it and now have a child with autism. I feel that maybe the folic acid alters normal brain development. What do you think about this possibility?

For my situation...I do not think this is the case. I took my prenatal vitamins as directed and ate like I normally do and I only have one child with Autism.

My son and I have Asperger's. My goal is to share our gifts from this, rather than being discouraged about how we "don't fit in".
