AAP Chair Comments on 1 in 88 Autism Prevalence Figure

The CDC’s newest autism prevalence data reveals that 1 in 88 children in our nation are on the autism spectrum with 1 in 54 boys being affected. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m not surprised by these numbers. I’ve met so many families that have a child, or even more than one child, on the autism spectrum. I’m the mom of two of these children.
