The rate of children being diagnosed with autism is rising rapidly.

So, it's time for Richland County to step-up its own diagnosis and treatment capabilities.

Richland Newhope is launching an Autism Diagnosis Education Project.

Therapy Services Director Carla Rumas says a nine-member team including pediatricians, therapists, teachers, and social workers has signed on to take eight weeks of training to work with local children at Newhope's Early Childhood Center.

Now, families must travel to the Cleveland Clinic, Akron Children's Hospital, or Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus for therapy and treatment.

When the team completes its training, it will be ready to provide those services locally.

The cause of autism is not known, and there is no cure. 
But Rumas says early diagnosis and treatment can give a person with it a much better chance of leading a productive life. 

The rather non-descript music and movement room at the Early Childhood Center is the perfect place for providing therapy to autistic children who can't handle sensory overload.

The Autism Diagnosis Education team will begin screenings in June.
