Action Alert!! CDC reports highest autism rate ever!

https://www.facebook.com/100050423832844/posts/450664486624342/?d=n

From Autism Action Network:

US Take Action: CDC reports highest autism rate ever. Media reaction: Silence

Ho hum, the latest autism numbers were released yesterday by the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) and they showed an increase of 25% since the last survey two years ago, the largest increase since the CDC began reporting autism numbers in 2000. One in 44 children (2.3%) are now diagnosed with autism compared to 1 in 54 (1.8%) reported by the CDC two years ago.

Yet the major media outlets completely ignore this disastrous news. Neither the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal or the Washington Post, the publications that set the agenda for the rest of the US corporate media, bothered to report the new numbers. We are experiencing a public health catastrophe of the first order and no one is paying any attention to it.

There is a notion frequently proffered in the corporate media that autism "is just a difference." The reality is that 90% of adults with autism are unemployed, 40% of people with autism have no effective way of communicating, and the cost of dealing with autism imposes severe economic distress on individuals with autism, affected families, school districts and social services. A recent analysis estimated the current cost of autism at $223 billion per year in 2020, rising to an estimated $1.36 trillion per year by 2040. See: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10803-021-05120-7

Yet the amount of effort spent on autism research is paltry, given the scope of the epidemic, about $300 million per year. An amount not much more than the payroll for the New York Yankees. And much of that effort is misdirected into dead ends like the endless search for the autism gene(s) that has dominated autism research for the last twenty years. If autism was genetic, we would have found the responsible genes by now. They do not exist. It is time to move on.

The numbers come from the federal Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network (ADDM) which surveys the number of 8-year-olds in eleven states and reports the numbers every two years. The data, however, are already old, the surveys were conducted in 2018. Applying the rate of growth identified in this report to the intervening years and we would expect autism numbers now are 40-50% higher than the newly reported number.

Since our decisionmakers probably will not learn about these numbers unless we tell them, please call your federal elected officials, since they have primary responsibility for autism policy. Their names and numbers should appear below.

Sen. Charles Schumer (D), (202) 224-6542, (212) 486-4430

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D), (202) 224-4451, (212) 688-6262

Rep. Thomas Suozzi (D), (202) 225-3335, (631) 923-4100

Some of the key findings include:

For the first time there is no statistically significant difference in the autism rate between black, white, and Hispanic children.
35% of the children surveyed also have intellectual disability, defined as an IQ lower than 70.

California had the highest autism rate at 3.9% (with a rate for boys of 6.5%), Missouri had the lowest rate at 1.7%.

For every girl with autism there are 4.2 boys. Overall autism rate reported for boys is 3.7% and .9% for girls.

When the corporate media used to report on the relentless rise in autism numbers concerns were frequently dismissed by claiming that the rise only reflected that we were doing a better job of finding children with autism, and that the higher numbers were a reflection of changes in the definition of autism issued by the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM).

The current survey for the first time used a modified definition of autism contained in the DSM 5. Tests comparing the autism rate using the older definition in the DSM-4r to the rate using the DSM-5 found that the DSM-5 resulted in lower numbers. "An analysis using data from ADDM Network surveillance years 2014 and 2016 compared the case definitions and found that, compared with the overall ASD prevalence using the previous case definition, ASD prevalence using the new case definition was approximately the same for 2014 and 7% lower for 2016." So the new definition of autism results in identifying fewer cases of autism that in the past, which means the real numbers are higher than the new numbers indicate.

Please share this message with friends and family, and please post on social networks while we still can.

Kudos to Outback Steak House! Not sure where I saw this post but knew I needed to add it here. This sign is on the backs of their chairs. The Outback in Merrick, Long Island, has Sensory Kits available for those on the Autism Spectrum. I believe they include noise cancelling headphones, toys for mental stimulation and menus with pictures so those unable to speak can order for themselves. All you need to do to get one is ASK! Hopefully all of their locations have them! We suggest calling the location you are going to and find out. www.destinationaccessible.org always wants you to "know before you go," to have your best experience possible.
