What’s really behind the increase in autism rates.
Alice Shabecoff

The just-released data on autism shows a count of 1 in 88 children, up from a rate of 1 in 110 three years ago and one in 150 five years ago. With each change, the response remains the same: Oh, that’s because of better detection and broader definitions.
