Get Educated About Autism Disorders

April is Autism Awareness Month. Autism is a developmental disorder that causes difficulties with social communication and interaction and restrictive and repetitive patterns of behavior. Autism is not a single medical condition. In 2013, autism disorders such as Asperger syndrome, classic autism, childhood disintegrative disorder and pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified were grouped together under one disorder called Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), approximately 1 in 68 children in the United States has ASD. ASD has been reported in all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups. It is 4.5 times more common in boys than in girls. Children in lower socioeconomic groups and children of color are more likely to be diagnosed later and have less access to treatment.
