Congrats to Viorletta for winning the AAP Autism Book!

Autism Spectrum Disorder: What Every Parent Should Know is a new resource published by the American Academy of Pediatrics that provides information on the most current types of behavioral and developmental therapies for Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Here are several facts taken directly from the book:

-Recent research suggests that one child in every 88 will be diagnosed with autism.

-Studies suggest that mothers with gestational diabetes are more likely to have babies with ASD.

-Based on 29 studies since 1999, scientists report no evidence that the MMR vaccine causes autism.

-Between 25 to 30% of children who develop autism appear to be developing normally, then regress, losing many or all of their language and social skills.

-Early signs of ASD are not pointing to draw attention and limited social interaction.

-Early intervention and treatment leads to better outcomes for individuals with ASD.
