Autism was once thought to affect only one in 10,000 children. The Center for Disease Control now reports one in 88 children are diagnosed with this disorder, affecting families, schools and the community at large. Despite the epidemic proportions and high health care costs associated, autism research received less than five percent of government funding last year.
