Tracing The Origins of Autism: A Spectrum of New Studies

Has the occurrence of autism increased over the years, or do the changes in diagnostic criteria account for the difference? High schoolers read an article about autism spectrum disorders and the related epidemiological studies that have been done. They answer questions on a handout and compare case-control to cohort types of studies. Use this resource for addressing Common Core State Standards for literacy in science and technical subjects.

When I am trying to find an alternative lesson from my norm, I try Lesson Planet, and always find a lesson that I can use. Sometimes a different perspective from a colleague can be that "point" that will work for that concept. I really feel that Lesson Planet is very well organized and easy to use. Thank you so much Lesson Planet for your help in my classroom.
