Autism is becoming a prevalent condition in American children, according to the latest figure one out of every 68 children has it, with African-American and Hispanic children having the highest number of cases reported. Despite its frequency, the nature of the condition remains hard to understand for most people, which has led author Simone Greggs to collaborate with her autistic son, Jeremiah Josey, to improve the public's understanding of this issue with her first book, Here's What I Want You To Know.
