The Cost of Autism

As a mother of an autistic child I know first hand the costs of testing, therapy and medications. Not to mention the physchical and emotional stress it can cause a family.
There is a video on CNN that touched my heart. I wanted to share it with you. http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/health/2008/10/21/gupta.autism.insurance.cnn?iref=videosearch

There are a few of my favorite sites to get more information.
