Autism is now at 1 in 88 in the USA. What do you think is attributed to this increase besides greater awareness?
Here is a detailed article from CNN on the 78% increase of Autism in the USA since 2002
From the article:
Mark Roithmayr, president of the advocacy group Autism Speaks, says more children are being diagnosed with autism because of “better diagnosis, broader diagnosis, better awareness, and roughly 50% of ‘We don’t know.’”
My question to you Fluther is what do you think the “We don’t know” factor is comprised of?
