Fast Facts About Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

ASD affects roughly one in 68 children nationwide.

It is about four times more likely to occur in boys than girls.

Because it is a spectrum disorder, each child with ASD will have a different set of challenges, needs, and abilities.

Though all of the causes of ASD are not known, research has revealed there are most likely many contributing factors, including genetics, early brain development, and environment.

ASD can be effectively diagnosed by the age of two, but some children can be diagnosed at even earlier ages.

Early detection of ASD is a big help in getting children the services they need.

There is no “cure” for ASD, but there are many interventions that can help children to develop the skills that will significantly improve daily life. Generally, the earlier children are diagnosed and start receiving services the better their results will be.
