What do you think of this new study? Autism might be more common than has been thought. According to this, DS7 could be on the spectrum.

Here are some other links:

The actual study will be published here, but is not up yet:

The American Journal of Psychiatry -- Table of Contents (168 [5])


One thing worth bearing in mind is they definitely widened the boundaries of what they included in the spectrum, and prevalence may mean either there are more children within the spectrum than previously thought, or that there are many undiagnosed children out there.

They included criteria that are sure to raise a few eyebrows, such a children who do not maintain regular eye contact, etc.

Now they believe that 1 in 38 children have some form of autism? I thought the 1 in 150 was unbelievable enough.

They may as well just assume that all kids are on the spectrum, create a behavioral check list of normal behaviors and see how many normal kids they can spot! Be a lot quicker.
