The Source: 1 In 79 People Are On Autism Spectrum In SA And Area Counties

November 2, 2016

One in 79 people in San Antonio and the surrounding area have some form of autism, according to a first-ever study about the prevalence of autism that was released earlier this year.

Autism is a neuro-developmental disorder characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and restrictive and repetitive behavior. 

A groundbreaking new online resource, Autism Life Links, is now available for people with autism and their families. The website, a collaboration between community agencies, seeks to serve Bexar County and the surrounding area. 

Guests: 

  • Tullos Wells, director of the Kronkosky Charitable Foundation

  • Kim Jefferies, CEO of the Brighton Center San Antonio
