A Silent Hurt.
Black, Susan
American School Board Journal, v187 n5 p50-52,54 May 2000
The Autism Research Institute says autism-like disorders affect 15 out of 10,000 children. Cases are climbing in schools, partly due to expanded diagnostic codes (see sidebar). Autistic children are often misdiagnosed as having attention-deficit, learning, or emotional disorders. Schools can help by providing good teachers and early intervention. (Contains 17 references.)
