A new study of Autism prevalence is gaining international headlines. Study shows 1 in 38 children, that's 2.64%, of kids they studied had Autism Spectrum Disorder ASD. They also found more than two-thirds of ASD cases in the mainstream school population unrecognized and untreated. This leads them to believe Autism prevalence estimates worldwide could increase when a comprehensive approach in used to identify children with ASD. Currently, ASD is diagnosed in one in 110 children in the United States, specifically one in 70 boys.

The prevalence of Autism has increased 600 percent in the past two decades. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls Autism a national public health crisis-the cause and cure unknown.
