Autism spectrum disorder now affects 1 in 68 children. Boys are nearly 5 times more likely than girls to be diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Autism spectrum disorder is one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders in the United States. ASD is more common than childhood cancer, diabetes and AIDS combined.
There is no “cure” for ASD, but there are several interventions that can help children learn important skills that improve everyday life. Typically, the earlier children are diagnosed and receive services, the better their outcomes are.
