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.
