The reason is because we know more now and can diagnose it better.

no

there's been advances in research to broaden the definition of autism, not a rise of children being diagnosed.

plus i think that a lot of kids are misdiagnosed.

No . I think its genetic in some way . I know lots of people with autistic children and have worked with many families with autistic children . On average if the family had three or more children with the same parents they had more than one autistic child

The spectrum of what is considered autistic has been vastly expanded in the last 10 years. People are label happy.
