U of R and Golisano's Hospital team up to help children with autism | News
This Saturday the top researchers from the U of R and Golisano's Children's Hospital got together to talk about what they're doing to help children with autism and their parents live better lives.
Lynne Cole was one of the speakers at the conference this morning and says, "There's a lot of potential treatments, there's a lot of new discoveries being made all the time about autism and that it's really important for them to be actively involved."
One out of every 88 children is believed to have autism or something very similar.
This is higher than the previous estimate of one in every 110 children.
Another recent study shows one in three young adults with autism have no paid job experience, college or technical schooling nearly seven years after high school graduation.
Half a million autistic kids will reach adulthood in the next decade.
