Educator's Warning of 'Tsunami' of Autism

LYNN, Mass. - Warning that a "tsunami" of autism is about to swamp public schools and community colleges, North Shore Community College President Wayne Burton plans to tell a state committee about statistics-gathering efforts aimed at combating intellectual disabilities.
In his remarks before the state Autism Commission, Burton will point out what state educators already know: Autism-related enrollment in school special-needs programs has seen a 62-percent increase for individuals ranging from preschoolers to college students between 2006 and 2010.
