1 in 45

Today is a big day for autism in the news. The statistics have, again, been updated and have risen from 1 in 68 (2013) to 1 in 45. The articles shows that 55.4% of those being diagnosed are between the ages of 3 and 10, 75% are male, 59.9% are caucasian, and 68% coming from a two parent household with 67.6% of those parents having post-secondary educations. It has broken my heart to read all of the articles published throughout the day. We have to get to the bottom of this!

    • It truly is unbelievable. I heard (don’t have the link on hand) that a scientist is predicting that, if the stats keep rising at this current rate, by 2025 1 in 2 children will be diagnosed. I can’t imagine.
