I know it has been a while since I posted on this blog, but World Autism Day is too important to pass up, so here I am.
1. The incidence and prevalence of Autism are NOT affected by any vaccines of any kind.
2. Autism affects all ethnic and socioeconomic groups.
3. Autism cannot be medically detected with current practices and technology.
4. Autism is diagnosed more in biological males over biological females.
5. Early intervention, as with most health conditions, is the best opportunity for a chance at a fruitful life for those living with autism.

Parting Thoughts: Autism is heavily misunderstood. We are also not anywhere near developing a good understanding of autism. It is important to support valid research and development for better diagnoses and therapies. Moreover, it is key that those who have conditions along the autism spectrum should be welcomed and integrated into society as well as possible.
