Autistic Disorder (Autism)

Statistics

Recent studies state that the number of people with all forms of autism cannot be precisely fixed, but it appears to be around 1 in 100 people. We do not know how many of these have autistic disorder.

Autism is present from birth, although the symptoms may not be immediately obvious. It is four times more common in boys than in girls.
