According to estimates in 2010, autism affects approximately 1 out of 150 children born in America, with the majority of them being boys. The Boy Scouts of America is the nations largest youth organization. The Autism and Boy Scouts website was created to give information to parents of autistic children considering if Scouting is right for their child and for Scout Leaders and Volunteers (Scouters) who have autistic children in their unit. This page was created by a volunteer for the BSA who is the parent of a child diagnosed with ASD/PDD-NOS.
