By Jeffrey Sterling, MD August 20, 2019

Introduction

autism awareness

It’s National Autism Awareness Month. We want you to have accurate information about the spectrum of disorders.

Autism prevalence is now one in every 59 children in America. In June 2014, researchers estimated the lifetime cost of caring for an individual with autism is as great as $2.4 million. If you have family members on the autism spectrum, you need assistance.

In 2018, the ADDM autism prevalence report of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention concluded that the prevalence of autism had risen to 1 in every 59 births in the United States. This rates was twice as great as the 2004 rate of 1 in 125. Identifying this explosion is a good thing in one regard. Placing focus on autism creates more urgency in addressing it. Autism awareness has also increased opportunities to provide support for families and individuals affected.

Do you or your family need help? Consider reaching out to great organizations like The Autism Society. Otherwise, you can simply ask your primary care physician for direction.
