#tbt - The Autism Rate Over the Years

I saw another mention of the rise in autism in something that I read today.  It reminded me of this image.  I made it last April and posted it on the AofA FB page:

#tbt - the numbers
Currently, the CDC publishes the autism rate to be 1 in 68.  These numbers should be alarming.  But I fear for some that they are not.  Maybe by 2025 people will wake up.  Maybe they'll be alarmed by then.  What's being predicted for 2025?  That's when some are saying that half of our nation's children will be diagnosed with autism.  

I don't find that prediction alarming.  I find it frightening.  

Do you?
