Autism Spectrum Disorder: Educate Yourself About Autism! Here's How!

During Autism Awareness Month, educate yourself about autism spectrum disorder. Here are some things about autism you need to know:

  • The prevalence of autism has risen to 1 in every 68 births in the U.S. 
  • The Autism Society estimates that the cost of autism over the lifespan is about $2.4 million for a person with an intellectual disability, or $1.4 million for a person without intellectual disability. 
  • When it comes to insurance, 45 states have required autism insurance coverage by law. Find out what your state requires.

Please help by learning more about these special individuals and how you can help families manage the cost of their care. For more information visit AutismVotes.org.
