On the day the CDC annouced new prevalence rates of autism in the U.S. (1 in 88, 1 in 54 for boys) Dr. Steve Contompasis, developmental pediatrician for the State of Vermont quickly accepted my invitation to come talk about the study and how it affects all of us. Dr. Contompasis calls the study 'a thought-provoking piece of work.' Discussion ensues how the DSM-V will impact all of us. (28 minutes)
