Autism rates have stabilized in US children

from TIME

Rates of autism spectrum disorder among children in the U.S. remained stable from 2014 to 2016, according to new research — a change from previous studies that found steady increases over the past two decades. The new research letter, published in JAMA, looked at survey responses from a nationally representative sample of more than 30,000 children, ages 3 to 17, and their families. From 2014 to 2016, adults in each household were asked if a doctor had ever told them that their child had autism, Asperger's disorder, pervasive developmental disorder or autism spectrum disorder. Data from the study was then adjusted to account for differences in people's age, gender and ethnicity. more
