The new number from the CDC is a 30% jump from the last federal estimate. But health officials say it may not mean autism is occurring more often. Much of the increase is believed to be from a cultural and medical shift.

Heather Ash's curator insight, March 1, 2014 12:19 AM

Fascinating information. The music program creator has seen amazing results in children with disabilities and has seen a connection between music and improved academic performance. The power of music has been studied for years. There are areas of the brain that are profoundly connected to and resonate with music. Autistic children in the program are able to excel at learning a musical instrument despite their disability. Not only that, but participating in music has helped them improve in other cognitive abilities. What is great about Yu, the woman who started the music therapy class, is that she strongly believes in treating everyone in her class the same and in rebuilding their self-esteem too. I loved one particular quote from her, “Remember, there is only one spot inside your child’s brain that has gone wrong. The rest of it is absolutely fine,” she says. “Things will change if you do not give up.” It is important for parents, counselors, and teachers to remember that individuals with autism can still accomplish and learn many things.
