SIMPLY DIAGNOSING AUTISM PROVING DIFFICULT

Dr. Bladh with his granddaughter who has autism
There was just a great article written (that you can click here) portraying a multitude of facts and experimental diagnostic testing for #Autism by Karen Weintraub to try and speed up the official diagnosis. I know there is so much red tape in getting services approved, I'm just wondering if the reactionary nature of our society is causing us to find treatments and diagnosis rather than prevention. The article does a wonderful job explaining the problems in getting early intervention from the complexity of the disorder to the denial of caregivers, but I would like to see our society respond to Autism similar to some other epidemic problems we have faced. I've seen a number of theories and some compelling statistics, but it seems like prevention is taking a back seat in our culture. #AutismOptometrist
