Summary:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which provides multisite surveillance of the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder, reports that the average prevalence of ASD among those identified in school districts was about 1 per 68, with boys (1 in 42) being identified 4.5 times more commonly than girls (1 in 189). Healthcare professionals of various disciplines working in schools, pediatrics, psychiatry, and outpatient, inpatient, and prehospital settings may encounter individuals with a pervasive developmental disorder also known as ASD. Healthcare professionals who are knowledgeable about ASD, diagnostic and treatment approaches, and the clinician’s role can provide support for both the individuals and their families.
