Ask the Experts About Autism

Half a million children with autism will become adults in the next decade, writes Amy Lennard Goehner in today’s Times Health Guide, and options to care for them are limited. The good news is that many states are providing more support for people with autism who live with their families and giving families greater flexibility and control over budgets. Read the entire Times Health Guide series of articles on autism, including an interview with David Amaral, a researcher who is exploring how genes affect autism; five things every parent should know about autism; questions to ask your doctor; and a list of clinical trials now recruiting patients.
