WHAT IS AUTISM / AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER?

Autism is a bio-neurological disorder that is detectable in early childhood. It is a "spectrum disorder" that has varied characteristics of abnormal social interaction and communication, restricted interests, highly repetitive and eccentric behaviors.

AUTISM FACTS & STATS

In 2011, it was 1 in every 110 children diagnosed with autism in this country. It is now 1 in 88 for this 2012 autism stats (1 in 54 are boys).

It is estimated that 67 million people word wide are affected by autism.

Autism is the fastest growing developmental disorder in the U.S.A.

In 2011, there was a 600% increase in the number of people with autism in the last 20 years.

More people will be affected by autism than AIDS, Cancer and Diabetis combined, but autism only gets 5% of research funding in comparison to any other disease.

There is no cure for autism, but early detection and intervention provides improvement.

Research indicates that at least two years of early behavioral intervention - during preschool years - can result in significant improvement in language ability and IQ for many young children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
