Regarding your review of "The Innocent" ("Autistic Boy's Skill Fingers the Killers," Sept. 24):
I am the aunt of a 7-year-old autistic child, and must strongly object to the statement, "Under the protective custody of (Kelsey) Grammer . . . the youngster gradually emerges from his private hell." This "youngster," Gregory, never intrinsically changes from his level of high-functioning (seemingly retarded) autism.
