More children than ever before – 1 in 68 – are being diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Track your child’s development and act early if you have a concern. Like the many families living with ASDs, CDC considers ASDs an important public health concern.
CDC is committed to continuing to provide essential data on ASDs, search for risk factors and causes, and develop resources that help identify children with ASDs as early as possible.
