Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Saturday said she would offer better autism-training for teachers, expand autism research and improve early-detection efforts. "It's time we had a government and a president that recognized the seriousness of autism and addressed it head-on," she said. "We can help people with autism live rich and full lives."
