A new study published in the journal Pediatrics has shown that families with at least one child diagnosed with autism earn 28 percent less than families without an autistic child.  Further, the study found that parents of autistic kids earn 21 percent less than families where a child has a different health limitation.

Approximately 1 in 110 children in the United States has an autism spectrum disorder.
