According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control, nearly 1 in 44 children born today have or will eventually have autism. That means that an estimated 1.5 million Americans have a neurodevelopmental disability that can limit a child’s lifelong potential for independence. Autism is reported to occur in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups, and it is about 4 times more common among boys than among girls.
the most obvious manifestations of autism are: social impairment, communication difficulties, sensory sensitives, and repetitive behaviors.
