According to government research, the rate for children diagnosed with autism is one out of every 110 and many in the medical community are calling it an epidemic.  Treating it can be difficult because much about the disorder is still unknown, but The Center for Discovery in Sullivan County is trying a new approach.   Thanks to a ten million dollar grant from the National Science Foundation and a partnership with MIT and Georgia Tech, the facility is measuring stress levels in the hope of notifying the child's teacher or parent before a potential emotional change takes place.  Watch the full report above.
