Autism Rates in Oregon Rise

From http://www.oregonlive.com/education/index.ssf/2012/04/students_needing_s...

The first report shows that since 2008-09, the number has risen by 2,727 kids -- a 3.3 percent growth rate, which is faster than Oregon's population growth of 2.6 percent in that period.

Much of the increase has been in autism, which continued an upward trend with an additional 1,115 students during the last three years.
