New Study Suggests 1 out of 68 Have Autism
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that the prevalence rate of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), based on surveillance studies of 8 year old children at eleven Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) sites throughout the United States, is now 1 out of every 68 children. This is a 30% increase over the 2012 report.
There is still a lot to learn about ASD. Research on ASD has increased a great deal in recent years and CDC is part of the larger group of public and private organizations working to better understand ASD through research. Like the many families living with ASD, CDC considers ASD an important public health concern. CDC is committed to continuing to provide essential data on ASD, search for risk factors and causes, and develop resources that help identify children with ASD as early as possible.

During the month of April the Indiana Commission will conduct hearings regarding seclusion and restraint in schools. At these hearings, members from public may come and provide comment on the rules. The Commission will memorialize the comments. After the three public hearings, the Commission will regroup and reevaluate the proposed rules taking into consideration the public comments. The Commission may incorporate some of the comments and modify the rules or it may leave them as they are. From there, the rules go to LSA, the AG’s office and the State Budget Agency for approval before they can be published.
