1 in 44 Prevalence: The Epidemic Continues

For #AutismActionMonth, we are grateful to share this new interview with Dr. Walter Zahorodny on autism prevalence and the December 2021 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report.  That new CDC report showed that 1 in 44 U.S children have been diagnosed with autism (1.)  This prevalence reports demonstrates an over 241% since the Autism and Developmental Disability Monitoring (ADDM) network since 2000.

Dr. Zahorodny is the principal investigator of the CDC ADDM network. His over 27 years of experience looking into autism prevalence, identifying data trends, and much more are shared in this new interview.

We are grateful for Dr. Zahorodny’s important work and will continue to share updates with every new ADDM prevalence report. The next report is anticipated in January or February 2023. 

We will continue to share the autism facts and prevalence updates. There is no time for excuses. It is time for additional support, services, treatments, and prevention strategies to help individuals and families living with autism.

  1. Is anyone pursuing Dr Naviaux’s research on Suramin and Autism. His trial results were very promising. Nothing seems to have happened with this in the past few years?

  2. To John Ramsey, that study you mention looks like it went down the tubes with many others that got nowhere. Lots of hype for nothing. Very unfortunate. I see advances in diabetes treatments all the time but autism gets nothing.
