"Trends in the epidemiology of autism spectrum disorder in the United States."
Abstract: Since the first epidemiologic study of autism in the U.S. was published in 1970, data from multiple sources have shown steady increases in the prevalence of autism. This talk will describe and discuss trends over time, risk factors, and public health implications of the rising prevalence of autism spectrum disorder.
