Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2012) Prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorders

Categories: Resources

The Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network is an American surveillance system, which estimates the prevalence of ASD among children aged 8 years whose parents or guardians reside within 14 Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network sites. The latest findings on prevalence of ASD are presented in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) suggesting that the condition is more common than it was previously thought.
