Opinion: Autism Epidemic Paralyzes Doctors

From Anne Dachel is Media Editor for Age of Autism.

Doctors still don’t know how to diagnose autism.
The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have a very difficult role to play when it comes to what they do about the autism epidemic.  Both organizations have to appear concerned (since something affecting more than one percent of U.S. children is a little hard to ignore), yet not alarmed over autism.  In addition, they have to be making some efforts to find answers at the same time they’re clearly paralyzed by the ramifications of this growing health care nightmare.
