Autism the BUZZ word of the decade?

Q. So why are we all of a sudden hearing about it everywhere. Every paper, magazine article seems to carry a story? The ‘older’ generations say they never had it in their day.

A. Official diagnosis has only been around since the early 1990’s. Aspergers Syndrome is a very ‘new’ discovery although Classic Autism has been around for slightly longer. Jelibean believes that although the discovery may be recent, autism origins go back in time many decades. But only recently have we had a ‘name’.
