In the medical field there are plenty of diseases to choose from. I decided to choose one I could personally relate to and that is Autism.

My question is: Can Autism be solved with medication & therapy? Throughout the project I will explain and come to a conclusion if my hypothesis was true or not. In doing this project I hope to somehow help those families and people that are affected by Autism. On a more personal note, I hope to enlighten ways to help my family cope with my nephew’s disability and find ways to understand him and help him learn to feel normal. Sadly, Autism consumes 1 in 150 children every year with increasing numbers.
