Autism
Many questions remain about the causes of autism and whether the increased number of cases reported recently indicate a spike in incidences or better diagnosis. What we do know is that, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 1 in 110 children in the United States has an autism spectrum disorder. Today we'll talk with people impacted by autism including the author of The Autism Mom’s Survival Guide Susan Senator, Tom Swanston, the Executive Director of Chesapeake Service Systems which provides employment and habitation opportunities for people with disabilities, and Dr. John Harrington, M.D., director of CHKD’s General Academic Pediatrics and an associate professor at EVMS. Dr. Harrington is also the father of an autistic child and has made the study and treatment of autism a major focus of his research and community outreach.
