New Autism Statistics


Speech Therapy Telepractice

Hi Everyone,

I found a website covering recent statistics on Autism. Some are very startling..

U.S. FACTS:

  • A new case of autism is diagnosed nearly every 20 minutes
  • There are 24,000 new cases diagnosed in the U.S. per year
  • The economic impact of autism is more than $90 billion and expected to more than double in the next decade.
  • Autism receives less than 5% of the research funding of many less prevalent childhood diseases.
  • There is no medical detection treatment, or cure for autism.

  1. Hi Marnee,
    I thought you might be interested in this article, from October’s “Atlantic,” about the spike in autism diagnoses.
