‘Best’ places to live with autism all in major metro areas

USA Today recently ran an article about an Autism Speaks study that found that the best places to live with a child with autism are all major metropolitan areas. It seems that the main determiner in what is a good place to live is primarily access to services that a child with autism needs. Families that live in rural areas have a much more difficult time accessing the services that their child needs.

It seems unfair that a family living in a rural area would have to completely uproot their lives and move to a more densely populated area just to receive necessary services. It doesn’t seem like this problem is going to improve anytime soon with funding being cut nationwide to early intervention and other services.
