Utah has one of the highest rates of autism in the nation, and when people hear the word autism they think of beautiful children who struggle with rigid routines & social interaction. But children with autism will spend the majority of their lives as adults with autism, many of whom struggle to get the support they need to lead successful, independent, lives of purpose.
