    For families dealing autism, there are many challenges such as finding appropriate education programs, accessing social services and community support. Rising awareness of the condition and concern about its growing prevalence is important. There are promising research initiatives sponsored by the U.S. National Institutes of Health and at university centers. More pediatricians understand the signs to look for in diagnosis. All of these trends are important and those who care about people with autism and their families will need to work to make sure they continue.
