Startling New Numbers: Study Reports Autism Prevalence Up 30% from 2012
Another study, another conclusion and it seems we are no closer to providing solutions for families. For those of us living with autism, we know that the number of children being diagnosed is increasing because more kids have autism, and because the tools for properly identifying this complex disease are improving. As the tools improve children who were previously diagnosed with other illness now have a more accurate diagnosis of autism. So what we have is reclassification, a shuffling of sorts that brings the real picture into focus.
