Autism Rates are Climbing - The Daily Utah Chronicle

The Daily Utah Chronicle, the University of Utah student paper, interviewed UAC President Mirella Petersen and University of Utah professor of psychiatry and autism researcher Judy Zimmerman, for this article about the rise in autism rates.

Here is a great excerpt from the article quoting Mirella: “There’s a huge nationwide movement, and Utah is significantly lagging, which means … our children will be paying the price,” she said. “The cost we’re paying today is a direct result of not treating autism 10 years ago … as the problem continues to increase, the cost will only rise unless we [address it].”
