80% Divorce Stat is Complete Garbage

Of course, we already knew that. There's a prior survey by Easter Seals on the question of divorce among the parents of autistic people.

Readers might remember I also tackled another 80% stat having to do with the divorce rate of autistic adults.

Both 80% stats are clearly made up. They are impossible to track back to original sources. The question is: Who made them up, and for what purpose?

Either way, do check out the story:
