In the News: Autism Rates Still Increasing?

News reports are highlighting a recent study in Wisconsin that may show a stabilization of the autism rate. The investigators believe that autism awareness and changes in classification standards may have been responsible for the "increase" in autism rates over the last fifteen years. The examination of the data in Wisconsin deserves some consideration. There may still be environmental factors that are also part of the increase in the autism rate, but it is important to try and look at everything that might be going on.



  1. Thanks for posting this article, Daniel. I get asked about causes and incidence rates of autism all the time. It is always great to keep everything in perspective.

  2. Thanks Dr. Gadberry for your comment. I appreciate your feedback!
