A new report from the CDC suggests that more and more children are now being diagnosed with autism. New estimates are 1 in 50 children. The increased rates are mostly in an older age group (6-13) and consist largely of milder forms of the disorder. Given the advanced age at which these children are being diagnosed, early identification of autism is more important than ever.
The new finding also suggests an increasing need for a program like TalkAbility™, the Hanen program for parents of verbal, high-functioning children ages 3-7.
