Angela: Need to understand autism disorders only gaining urgency

In America in 2014, one child in 68 will be born with a form of autism. That's a startling number, and the need to know more about autism and what can be done to prevent and treat it has never been more important.

Just to begin, autism is a neurological disorder and people who are diagnosed with it are characterized by a difficulty communicating and forming relationship.

Autism is not just one singluar symptom; it includes a spectrum of behaviors that can vary by individual. As the medical and scientific communities look for answers, I had a chance Monday to talk to some parents who are living out the experience with their own children.

Listen to the podcast below and see how parents learn their child is autistic, what their story is, how it has impacted their lives, and how it has improved over the years.
