Autism Through the Lifespan #2: Childhood

Every year the incidence of autism grows in the United States. CDC says soon as many as 1 in 100 may be diagnosed as being somewhere “on the spectrum.” While some are not diagnosed until later in life most cases are found during childhood. Many parents of autistic children dived their lives into two segments- before diagnosis and after diagnosis. Listen to the second installment of DUQ’s nine-part series on autism. Additional installments will follow on 90.5FM WDUQ every day this week during Morning Edition at 6:40am and 8:50am, and on All Things Considered at 4:20pm and 6:20pm. All of the stories will be archived after they air at this link.
