In the most recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on autism, the CDC estimates that 1 in 88 children “has been identified with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).” This represents a 23% increase from the CDC’s 2009 report and a 78% increase from their 2007 report. Children of color had the largest increases over time. Diagnoses of children without intellectual disabilities increased disproportionally and there was also a relative increase in diagnoses of children a younger ages.
