So as World Autism Awareness Day approaches on April 2nd, the news comes out that the numbers have gone down once again. As someone who lives with autism every day, while the numbers are sort of mind numbing, they also scare me.
The headline 1 in 68 is all over the internet but I found the article “1 in 68 US Kids Has Autism Spectrum Disorder” over at LiveScience by Bahar Gholipour.
I also read this article that didn’t appear to get quite the same coverage yet is also important. The article is “Autism May be Tied to Flawed Prenatal Brain Growth” over at ABC News by Lindsey Tanner.
