More than half of school-aged kids were age 5 or older when they were first diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, the study showed. Less than 20% were diagnosed by age 2. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that pediatricians screen children for autism at 18 months of age.
"I am very passionate about helping others. I believe people can feel that passion. Having Autism myself, I am focused on helping others like myself. Especially children."
