Prevalence of Autism Among 4 Year Olds

Dear Colleagues-

Today the Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics is publishing an important article from the CDC Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network on the prevalence of autism among 4 year old children in the ADDMN. The findings describe ASD prevalence among 4 year olds, differences among children diagnosed at 4 years and 8 years of age, differences in age at first comprehensive diagnostic evaluation for children born in 2002 vs. 2006, as well as demographic profiles of pre-school age children diagnosed with ASD.  Given the recent controversies regarding early screening for ASD, we feel that this paper provides new information in regard to early identification.  We hope that you'll find it of interest.

The full paper (as well as a commentary on its findings) can be accessed in the Publish Ahead of Print section of the JDBP website.

Thank you.
