1 in 88

Did you know autism affects 1 in 88 children?  That number is even higher for boys - our sons are being diagnosed at a rate of 1 in 54.  A recent CDC survey suggests that the rate of autism is higher, affecting 1 in 50 children.

April is Autism Awareness Month - or as one of my friends put it on Facebook...

I'll be sharing stories, resources, tips, etc. throughout the month so please check back often.  Tomorrow I'll be joining the ladies of D the Broadcast to discuss autism awareness and Autism Speaks' Light It Up Blue campaign.  So set your DVRs or tune in!
