The Centers for Disease Control estimate that, as of 2014, 1 in every 68 children in the U.S. has some form of autism — a 30 percent increase from 2012. These alarmingly high figures underscore the importance of helping those with special needs to lead fulfilling and productive lives. On the next Addressing Alaskans, author and founder of the Autism Independence Project, Amalia Starr, speaks through her own experiences about the potential for children with autism to achieve independence into adulthood.
