Did you know that Utah has one of the highest rates of autism in the United States? 1 out of 133 children in Utah are diagnosed with autism. On the flip side, research from the University of Utah's Autism Research Center shows that individuals with autism thrive better in Utah when compared to other states.
Recently, my friends Karen & Don Fairchild were interviewed with their son Matthew, who is an adult with autism. Utah's KUTV news aired the following segment spotlighting Matthew and another adult with autism as well. You can view the video here.
