    Approximately one in 68 children has an autism spectrum disorder, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

    A big part of dealing with autism starts with parents.

    Elaine Gabovitch, an autism advocate and Act Early ambassador with the University of Massachusetts Medical School, joins NECN to discuss developmental awareness.

    "We really wanted to have parents really thinking about celebrating development with their young children, and one way to do that is by knowing what developmental milestones children should be attaining at certain ages and tracking those milestones," she explained.
