Pennsylvania has released a report showing that the number of children and adults diagnosed with autism in the state is expected to rise dramatically. As the first state to compile such a report, Pennsylvania officials hope the study will help better meet the needs of people with the disorder. "As we worked to determine who these families were and where they lived, our sense that Pennsylvania faces a very real crisis was confirmed," Gov. Ed Rendell said.
