He added, "Increased awareness and research will give light to new technologies and advancements. Together we advocate for change that will improve lives."

Autism is one of the fastest-growing developmental disabilities in the United States, affecting one in 68 American children. A recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study reports that Utah’s autism rate is even higher — affecting one in 54 Utah children, a rate down from one in 47 in 2008.
