The number of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder has risen significantly over the last few decades. In my role as Healthcare Information Specialist with PATH, much of my time is devoted to educating the public about Autism in children. Our goal is to highlight the possible signs of Autism in children and to guide families of children who already have an Autism diagnosis toward care coordination and support. I have a “road show” about Autism which consists of a Power Point presentation, handouts and a video about children with Autism (which can be viewed on our web site at www.pathct.org).
