So many questions surround autism. What is it? What are the signs we should look for? Can it be cured? How prevalent is it? How much does it cost to raise a child with autism? Here are just a few things we know thus far.
Please note, while I appreciate the image courtesty of Guide to Nursing Degrees I do not fully agree with all the information. I disagree with the use of medication to help with autism symptoms. But that is a decision for each family to make on their own for their own child/children. I do feel that educational and behavioral therapy and early intervention are the best. And that diet also plays a major factor in helping children with autism. These statements of course are from my personal experiences.
