CDC Features – “10 Things to Know About New Autism Data”

On the CDC Features page, there is new information regarding new autism information. Click the following link to read the full article: http://m.cdc.gov/en/Features/new-autism-data.

The following are quotes from the article:

“About 1 in 68 children (or 14.7 per 1,000 8 year olds) were identified with ASD. It is important to remember that this estimate is based on 8-year-old children living in 11 communities. It does not represent the entire population of children in the United States.”

“The following estimates are based on information collected from the health and special education (if available*) records of children who were 8 years old and lived in areas of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Utah, and Wisconsin in 2010:”

“About 80% of children identified with ASD either received special education services for autism at school or had an ASD diagnosis from a clinician. This means that the remaining 20% of children identified with ASD had symptoms of ASD documented in their records, but had not yet been classified as having ASD by a community professional in a school or clinic.”

“Black and Hispanic children identified with ASD were more likely than white children to have intellectual disability. A previous study has shown that children identified with ASD and intellectual disability have a greater number of ASD symptoms and a younger age at first diagnosis. Despite the greater burden of co-occurring intellectual disability among black and Hispanic children with ASD, these new data show that there was no difference among racial and ethnic groups in the age at which children were first diagnosed.”

Contacting Me

Hello, everyone,

I often get a question asked questions on comments to my posts. I am sorry if you have asked me something and I have not responded. I do not respond or reply to comments. I’m not trying to be rude, but I get comments everyday with links to other sites that could contain viruses, so I delete them.

I have gotten lots of comments from some . . . . “adult” websites. I am thankful that they have taken the time to comment on my blog, but I do not want those kinds of links on my blog, so I delete the comment.

So, if you do want to contact me, which you are very free to do, please e-mail me autism4life@outlook.com. I usually check my e-mail every day, so you should get a reply from me fairly quickly.
