1 in 88: APRIL IS AUTISM CRISIS MONTH!

CDC Announces 1 in 88 Autism Numbers: Safeminds Responds with Autism Crisis 2012 - AGE OF AUTISM


Managing Editor's Note: From SafeMinds:  Awareness Isn't Enough - We Need ActionToday the Centers for Disease Control issued the long-awaited autism prevalence numbers for children born in 2000 - 1 in 88 children.

When I first heard the news, I was a little numb to it.  Just what we expected.  Then I thought about it for a few minutes and it felt like a punch in the gut.  So many children affected, needlessly.  Some of them are friends of my three boys.  These are real kids, not numbers. They deserve better.
