Jenny Hill, Angel’s Purse, says a 95-percent increase in autism cases in Arizona was reported recently in a study using data compiled by the U of A.  The same study found 1 case in 110 nationally.  She says there’s still no way to prevent autism but gains have been made in treating it.  She says diet and nutritional supplements have shown success as has “sensory learning,” the ability to incorporate different senses either alone or in combination to heighten and reinforce the learning process.
