Jenny Hill, Angel’s Purse, says April is National Autism Month.  According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) approximately 1 in 110 people in the U.S. have Autism Spectrum Disorder. She says children do not "outgrow" autism, but with early diagnosis and intervention, significantly improved outcomes are reported.  She says her son, who has autism, is now a junior in high school and is able to take the bus on his own and has demonstrated significant math skills.
