Autism On the Rise

Reporting: Liz Cooper, LCooper@K2TV.com 



The CDC released a new study this week about autism on the rise. 

According to the study, 1 in every 88 children are autistic. 

We spent some time with a young autistic girl, learning about the disorder from her eyes and the eyes of her family and friends. 

She's 9 year old Josie. 

A third grader at Paradise Valley Elementary school, who was diagnosed at 22 months with autism.
