Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorder (“ASD”) are both names for a group of complex brain development disorders. Those with ASD often experience difficulties with social interactions, verbal and nonverbal communication, maladaptive behaviors and may engage in some form of stereotypy. Diagnoses of Autism are on the rise affecting 1 in 54 Americans.

How Common is Autism?

Autism Spectrum Disorder, which was formalized in only 2013 with the publication of the DSM-5 diagnostic manual, affects about 1% of the world’s population (according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention). That’s a total of over 75 million people, of which at least three million are Americans.  Regarding children specifically, there are 10X as many considered to have ASD than 40 years ago. Said increases are directly tied to publicity, decreased stigma, and awareness, with diagnosis being only a part of the reason.
