According to the latest data released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) continues to rise at an alarming rate. Among 8 year olds, 1 in 68 American children has ASD. But the prevalence differs with gender and race: Are you ready? ONE in 42 BOYS has been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

I am proud to say that Dr. Cowan was my kids’ pediatrician. In many ways, he was a round peg doctor practicing in a square hole medical world. Eventually he gave up his “traditional” pediatric practice in order to practice his way; to step outside the box.
And I will always remember what Patricia Lemer says:
Genetics loads the gun and the environment pulls the trigger.
