SouthCoast Health pediatrician: Essential info for understanding autism

1 in 59 American children have autism.

“Unfortunately, many still view autism negatively and those with autism suffer from the biased opinions of others,” said SouthCoast Health Pediatrician Dr. Nelson Elam. “This is largely in part of lack of knowledge.
