(RNN) – The estimated number of children in the U.S. with autism increased nearly one-third in two years, according to figures released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
One in 88 children had autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in 2008, according to the CDC. That number grew to 1 in 68 in 2010, an increase of 30 percent, in the most recent report provided Thursday.
The CDC began tracking the disorder in 2000 using the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network. The most recent study involved all health and education records for 8-year-olds in 11 states: Alabama, Wisconsin, Colorado, Missouri, Georgia, Arkansas, Arizona, Maryland, North Carolina, Utah and New Jersey.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
