1 in 68 children have been diagnosed with autism. While it is necessary to research the causes of autism, we must allocate more of our efforts toward identifying and creating resources so that our children are able to experience successful outcomes in life. We need to devote more research towards how children with autism transition into adults with autism and how their transitions are impacting their families or caregivers emotionally, physically and financially. There is a pink elephant in the room that no one wants to acknowledge, placing families and society at risk of a crisis in years to come regarding the long-term care of individuals with autism.
