According to the Centers for Disease Control, the prevalence of the autism among 8-year-olds increased 30 percent from 2008 to 2010. Researchers are still uncovering what causes autism. A recent study at CWRU found the brains of autistic kids are “noisier” than non-autistic kids. Another recent study suggests autism starts in the womb. Bit by bit, we're gaining a better understanding of autism.
