Today, the odds that your child will have an autism spectrum disorder is 1 in 68. The chances are even higher for boys at 1 in 42. There are 3 million children with autism spectrum disorders in the United States. Every year, more and more families are searching for resources to help their children with autism grow.
Autism Speaks and the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center (SARRC) are beacons of hope for these families and their children. Offering innovative classes, programs and support, these nonprofit organizations are providing better tomorrows and empowered futures for children with autism spectrum disorders.
