Jenny Hill, Angel’s Purse, says the agency is dedicated to the service of families of children with autism.  A recent U of A study found 1 case in 85 in Arizona.  She says it’s possible this is due to an increased awareness about the disorder and perhaps the broader criteria of what is included in the autism spectrum.  She says it is also quite likely environmental or genetic issues could also be factors.  Hill doesn’t rule out the possible role of thimerosal in vaccines, despite ongoing debate over this.
