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.

John W. Harrington, M.D.
- Division Director of General Academic Pediatrics, CHKD -

What? Me Worry?

What is it that truly worries you? Why do some risks feel more frightening than others?  In a day where worries and risks include climate change, cancer concerns, and a war on terrorism, how do we decide what risks are actually dangerous and which ones are false alarms?  On this encore edition of HearSay, Cathy talks with David Ropeik, author of “How Risky Is It, Really? Why Our Fears Don’t Always Match the Facts," about finding a comfortable place between fear and fact.
