(Autism Poll) How many children with #Autism do you have?



It used to be unheard of to have one child with Autism. Anymore, it’s not uncommon to have more than one child on the spectrum. As a father of three boys with Autism, I can remember six years ago when my youngest was diagnosed at Akron Children’s Hospital, they were floored to have a family in their facility that had three kids with Autism.

Times have changed and more and more kids are being diagnosed. I wanted to know how many children do you have with Autism?
