A new study released in April by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one in 88 children in the United States has been identified as having an autism spectrum disorder. The study also showed that autism spectrum disorders are almost five times more common among boys than girls - with one in 54 boys identified.

There are several organizations in the Valley that families affected by autism can turn to for guidance and resources. Here is a sampling of the programs offered through The Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) and the Council for Jews With Special Needs (CJSN). Chabad's Friendship Circle of Arizona also has programs for children with special needs.
