Dealing with Expected Wave of Young Adults with Autism
6ABC Action News (Philadelphia), 4/15/15
From the newscast: “For the past 10 to 15 years, America has faced a challenge with the growing number of children diagnosed with being on the autism spectrum. Now the country faces a new challenge, some say a crisis, as these children move into adolescence and young adulthood. We met one of them, Andrew Taylor, a junior at Temple University, last week.”

Dateline NBC, 4/12/15

A Child, Coping, with Autism and Everything Else
NY Times, 2/17/15
From the article: “My son has started turning. Turning his body, I mean, pivoting 360 degrees on the threshold before going through doors, mostly, though sometimes it’s an N.B.A.-like fake left or right just before he starts to move forward. Once we noticed, we asked him about it and got, eventually, a pretty clear answer: ‘I was turned the wrong way.’ Ah.”
