With autism now at what some experts call “epidemic” levels, some North Texas entrepreneurs say technology is the key to making treatment more affordable and therefore available to more families.
The Centers for Disease Control now estimates that one in 88 children in the US have autism. Fifteen-year-old Michael Susens is one of them, diagnosed when he was just two years old.
Six-year-old Andy Barrow loves to read, but his older brother Alex would rather play. One thing the two brothers from Cleburne have in common, however, is autism.
Tom Hise said he doesn’t know if his son will ever be able to verbalize his thoughts, but 10-year-old Robert is active and energetic about his time spent at a Plano gym development for children with autism.
Dan and Susan Burns worry about where their son will live and learn after they are gone. 23-year-old Benjamin Burns was diagnosed with Autism when he was three.
