One of the most replicated physical features of autism is a larger brain with more neurons and a larger number of minicolumns.
The number of minicolumns is fixed during the first trimester in utero. Nothing months or years later can change that number.
I think she was trolling for funding. Telling the delusional anti-vax people what they want to hear so they will give her money.
Unfortunately that is the way that getting funding works. The honest and good scientist who knows his/her limits and doesn't lie has difficulty competing with the frauds who say "I will cure cancer/CFS/autism/stupidity/ugliness with this funding".
