With 1 in 58 children being diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, accepting individuals with autism is not enough. Moving from autism acceptance to advocacy, ensuring we do not become apathetic to the ever increasing number of children diagnosed with autism and other behavioral health diagnosis.
In this episode of CONNECTED with Mika Bradford we’re discussing:
- What is causing the continued increase in children being diagnosed with autism? Is it better diagnosing, environmental factors, food preservatives, medications, vaccinations or a combination of all the above?
- Why autism acceptance and understanding is needed and how it may actually be creating a sense of apathy in identifying what factors could be causing the continued increase in behavioral conditions.
- Why we MUST take action in creating sustainable programs and services that will address the long term care needs of these generations to come.
