Here are some statistics of other disorders to put it into perspective – 

Autism 1 in 59

Aspergers 1 in 68

Cerebal Palsy 1 in 323

Down Syndrome 1 In 700

AS – 1 in 12,000-20,000. 

Rare…very rare! There are so many resources for other disabilities that the AS community lack. When we tell someone, Max has AS we often have to educate them, even some medics! We will continue to educate as many people as we possibly can.
