Discussing the politics of autism.

Editorial #166: Observation #7

Autism Politico observes that the number 166 used to be a figure that was important in the autism community. In other words, not too long ago, one in 166 people had an autism spectrum disorder.

Now that number is 1 in 150 or lower, depending which agency is reporting the figures.

Does it matter?

The fact is, more and more people are being identified as being special people, and now they will be better able to get the accommodations they need.
