Autism Rate up 78%

As many of you may know the CDC released the latest data estimate report today. A few of us were talking about it this morning, and trying to guess what the new rate would be. My guess was 1 in 85, and I was super close....The CDC reports that the autism rate has risen from 1 in 110 in 2006, to now an astonishing 1 in 85 children, with 1 in 54 boys being affected with ASD (thats a 5:1 ratio to girls). This is a 78% increase from 2006. If you would like to read more of the report, CLICK HERE.
