The Autism Whisperer of Hawaii

Helene Mann
Take a moment to picture every redhead you have ever seen or met in your life. Got it?
The most recent studies by the state departments of Health and Human Services on autism put the current prevalence of children born with the disorder at one in 88 births, a rate higher than children born with auburn locks (which stands at one in 100).
That means that in next few years you will know more children with autism than ones you can affectionately call “ginger.” The disability has been growing at a double-digit rate since it was first discovered in 1943, when just one in 10,000 children were found to have the condition.
