A Few Facts About Autism
1 in 144 girls are diagnosed with autism; compared to 1 in 54 boys being diagnosed.
40% of people who are diagnosed with autism are nonverbal.
On average, autism costs an estimated $60,000 a year through childhood, with the bulk of the costs in special services and lost wages related to increased demands on one or both parents.
African American children are 5x more likely to be misdiagnosed as having a behavior disorder than being correctly diagnosed with autism.
