One in 68 kids in the U.S. has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder according to the Center for Disease Control.

With the diagnosis comes extra planning, services, and technology needed to help kids.

The amount of money spent in the U.S. for children with autism is estimated to be up from $11 to 60 billion.

And with the extra burden, the Autism Spectrum Task Force is working to provide the best service they can to kids and their families. 

“Where are the gaps, and what do we need to consider for the future in order to increase the quality of life for people with Autism Spectrum Disorders?” Krista Fremming, North Dakota Department of Human Services says.

The Autism Spectrum Disorder Task Force was created in 2009.

Members of the task force are appointed by the governor.
