Autism in Utah

Jun 3, 2014

One in 54 Utah children have Autism Spectrum Disorder, and that's higher than nearly everywhere else in the US. So the obvious question is why? Researchers have yet to identify a cause, so we can't find easy answers in our environment or in our genetics. But Utah has been ahead of the curve on research, and it has a vibrant activist community with support from educators and lawmakers. Wednesday, Doug talks to a panel of guests about what we know and don't know about autism in Utah.
