10 Things to Know About New Autism Data

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new data about prevalence rates of Autism Spectrum Disorders in 2014. This CDC webpage explains 10 things to know about the data. It also has a link to view the full report.

 

New data from CDC's Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network show that the estimated number of children identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) continues to rise, and the picture of ASD in communities has changed. These new data can be used to promote early identification, plan for training and service needs, guide research, and inform policy so that children with ASD and their families get the help they need. CDC will continue tracking the changing number and characteristics of children with ASD, researching what puts children at risk for ASD, and promoting early identification, the most powerful tool we have now for making a difference in the lives of children. Learn the 10 things you need to know about CDC's latest ADDM Network report.
