Cost of autism

To read this article, I would have to say I was caught off guard at the cost associated with autism. In addition to the cost being between $1.43 and 2.44 million per individual, the cost overall is $236 billion. Yes, that’s billion.

The article is “Cost of Autism in the U.S. May Surpass $236 Billion a Year” by Karen Kaplan in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch via the Los Angeles Times.

Wow!
