It was 1 in 110 in 2011 now it’s 2012 and it’s 1 in 88 Are you Autism Aware ? #autismawareness #aspergers #proudautismmom #aspiemom #myloveforautism #myloveforautismboutique #autismangel #autism β€πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’› (Taken with Instagram)

Woo! More comparing autism to life-threatening diseases!
I don’t believe there was that big of a jump from 2011 to 2012. It was simply that we were operating on old numbers (from 2008?), so that’s what it seemed like.
Higher rate = more accurate diagnoses.

individuals=/=
childhood
juvenile
pediatric
INFANTILIZE MUCH???????

That too. There are many of us who are finally obtaining diagnoses, answers as adults and are included in this stat (along with adult autistics who were dx as children). I hate the way only kids are mentioned in these discussions.

Didn’t you know? There are no autistic adults. Autistic children simply transform into beautiful butterflies and fly away on their eighteenth birthdays.
