Service providers and medical professionals are seeking ways to help children with autism.

The number of children diagnosed with autism each year is increasing, and a recent report by the Center for Disease Control says 1 in 88 children are diagnosed with autism.

Some say those rising numbers are due to increased awareness of autism spectrum disorders, while others say those increases signal changes in our environment. We’ll talk with guests about new research on autism and discuss what changes we’ll have to make in the future to provide support for the increasing number of people placed on the autism spectrum.
