[Source: Disability Scoop]
Federal officials are moving forward with plans to track the experiences of teenagers with autism.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has selected 11 sites to be part of the next surveillance efforts through its Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network.
All of the sites will comb through records from 8-year-olds and 4-year-olds in their areas to determine how many qualify for an autism diagnosis.
