Concerned about the increase of autistic children

Postby Tekman101101 » Mon Nov 06, 2017 4:35 pm

I am now in my 60’s and for my whole life I had never known anyone that was autistic.... that I know of.
I now know of four people that are autistic and they are all little children six years old and younger.
What is going on? None are directly related to me.

(PS... I know this is not a “scientific” observation...I am just concerned as two of these little children belong to my step-daughter. Interestingly enough one of her other children is perfectly normal AND seems to be VERY intelligent.)
