Yes, I think the way you're reading it is right. I think a lot of attention needs to be paid to the first few paragraphs where they specify that this isn't enough to go by and they haven't concluded if its more the reasons of induction in the first place (complications with mom or baby) rather than induction itself.

Never induced, Dd1 aspie, Dd2 nt, Ds Autism.
It is definitely genetics for us though, dh and many of his family are on the spectrum.
I do wonder though if we have the 'gene' and something triggers it.
Like both my ASD pregnancies I was put on antibiotics, which they are researching about this causing an infection in utero triggering autism.
Or my Dd1 was a traumatic birth, Dd2 easy, Ds was breech...
So maybe if you were predisposed to it an induction could be a trigger? But I certainly don't think induction alone is a cause.

At the end of the day no one knows why people get Autism, there is a genetic component of course - but that can't just be it, otherwise if one Identical twin had it, the other always would, but they don't. If one ID twin has Autism then chance that the other will have it is about 70% - that suggests genetics but with an environmental trigger.
It can't just be a case of not believing this or that based on ones own experiences - because all the researchers in the world who are working on this very thing don't know what does or doesn't trigger it.

This article has some more info on the possibility of a link to oxytocin and ASD.
Prior studies pointed out that children with ASD have lower-than-normal levels of oxytocin. In addition, mutations that occur in the oxytocin receptor gene make some individuals more likely to develop autism. Individuals with ASD struggle to recognize emotions other people exhibit and find themselves easily distracted by noise in the environment.
