CDC Releases New Autism Statistics

Just a quick posting to point out the new numbers from the CDC on the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder among our children. Today, it was released that  1 in 88 children have an autism spectrum disorder. Think about that number for a minute – 1 in 88 children.

Hopefully this means that much needed research money will now be granted to further study autism,  red tape regarding insurance coverage for treatment relating to autism will be resolved, and schools will be better able to aid in the education and  therapeutic interventions of the autism spectrum as it relates to the classroom.
