It’s no surprise that the topic of autism is continually in the media. Autism Spectrum Disorder is the fastest growing developmental disability in the nation and is now more prevalent than Down syndrome, childhood diabetes and childhood cancer combined.
Autism can be regarded as the “pandemic of our time”. Today, as many as one in every 110 children is diagnosed with autism - that's one every 20 minutes. Boys have a higher risk, with one in every 70 boys being diagnosed. Easter Seals Southeast Wisconsin supports individuals, of all ages, living with autism.
