Can demyelinization be a cause of autism?

I am a therapist who is desperately seeking some answers to some
neurological questions.  I treat pediatric patients and have recently
started seeing some children with autism.  Interestingly enough, I
treated a child with demyelinization disorder and found some astounding
sensory similarities.  I need to know if the pyramidial tracts are
encased in myelin.  Could autism be a demyelinization disorder (say like
Guillian-Barre) only in the pyramidial tracts of children.  Research has
shown some funky protein combos in the bloodstream-could this simply be
the biproducts of broken down myelin.  I realize I am a little out of my
territory-but the thoughts are driving me crazy.  If anyone has any
thoughts or comments-please let me know. Feel free to e-mail at:
