Pennsylvania Study Sheds Light on Autism

PITTSBURGH -- Information from more than 3,500 autistic adults and caregivers is included in the Pennsylvania Autism Needs Assessment study, the largest of its kind in the nation.
Anne Bale, a spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare (DPW) said there was a great need for information about people living with autism.
While it’s a prevalent condition, still there’s not a lot known about autism and the struggles that families and children and adults with autism face,” said Bale. “So we wanted to gather some basic information about what it’s like to be an autistic individual or a family caring for someone with autism in Pennsylvania.”
