The CDC announced this week the new rates for children diagnosed with autism... 1 in 88 children and that is 1 in 54 for boys. Wow! Honestly I can't say that I am surprised but it is a scary stat.
I am insanely grateful for the opportunities I have to make a difference in the lives of children with this often confusing and always interesting disability. If it wasn't for meeting my first kiddos with autism I may not be where I'm at today and I couldn't imagine doing anything else!
