Getting help for families dealing with autism was the goal of Saturday’s autism roundtable discussion in Canandaigua.

Autism experts and local professionals were on hand to explain the different services and assistance available for families dealing with the disorder.

"The good news is children today are graduating with honors from high school and getting into college with the autism spectrum, but need to make sure the additional services are being provided,” said Sen. Mike Nozzolio, 54th District.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in 88 children is diagnosed with autism.
