Autism has been called the "hidden epidemic..." the nation's fastest growing, developmental disorder. Government studies estimate one in every 68 children... five times more likely to strike boys (1 in 42) than girls (1 in 189)... are diagnosed with autism. It is more common than Down Syndrome. It afflicts more children than cancer. No one knows its cause and no one has a cure. What happens to these children when they become adults?
