Piecing The Puzzle Together - Autism Awareness Month
1 in 88 children cope with autism, according to the latest report released by the CDC.  The 78% increase over the past decade begs the question: are cases of Autism Spectrum Disorders on the rise, or have diagnostic techniques simply become more effective?  Today on HearSay, Cathy is joined by professionals on the front lines helping those affected by autism.  We’ll discuss the changing landscape of autism diagnosis and  treatment, as well as the challenges facing educators and parents of autistic children.
