On World Autism Awareness Day, Gratitude — and a Wish List - NYTimes.com



If you are in Lee's Summit your child has no chance.



If you’re born with autism, where you live makes a big difference. We benefited from New York’s Early Intervention program, designed to help children below the age of 3 diagnosed with or at risk for developing a disability. Research shows that high-quality early intervention can help children with autism, and other disabilities, improve. Catherine Lord, the director of the Center for Autism and the Developing Brain, said that experts were very hopeful that my son’s generation of children with autism will have better outcomes because more have received intensive early intervention.
Nationwide and worldwide, access to early treatment is a challenge. Recognizing and getting a diagnosis of autism early is the first hurdle, and families face a wide range of cultural, financial and organizational barriers.
