History of Autism in the United States Infographic

Did you know that autism wasn’t a distinct diagnostic category until the DSM-III? Did you know that autism is almost 5 times more common among boys than girls? These facts and more from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control are presented in the ‘History of Autism in the United States’ infographic, which was custom made for The Autism Education Site.
