New Government Research Finds One in Every 100 Children Has Autism, of Whom Nearly 40% Are Recovered
Date:10/5/2009

The Autism Research Institute (ARI) states that many diagnosed with autism have underlying medical disorders that are amenable to treatment; hundreds of parents, researchers, and clinicians from around the world will discuss current research and treatment options at this weekend's ARI/Defeat Autism Now! Conference in Dallas, TX.

DALLAS, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Children's Health Survey published results from a 2007 telephone survey in Pediatrics today in which 78,000 households in the US were asked if their child (ages 2-17) was known to "currently have autism, Asperger's Disorder, pervasive development disorder, or other autism spectrum disorder." The survey showed that 1% of children (one in 100) now have the disorder. Previous estimates from the CDC had reported a prevalence rate of one in 150.

The survey also reported that nearly 40% of households surveyed who had a child diagnosed with autism reported that their child did not currently have the condition. This finding supports numerous reports from the Autism Research Institute, that recovery from autism is possible in some children. According to Dr. Stephen M. Edelson, Executive Director of ARI, new research challenges the long-held view that autism is an incurable genetic disorder: "What we are discovering is that those with autism often have underlying medical disorders that impair neurological, gastrointestinal, metabolic, and immune systems, that when these problems are accurately diagnosed and treated, the symptoms of autism often improve -- sometimes to the point that the child is no longer classified as autistic."

The Autism Research Institute (ARI) was the first organization to call attention to the alarming increase in autism. Today it is the hub of a worldwide network of parents and professionals who are seeking answers to what has caused this dramatic increase in autism spectrum disorders, and what can be done to help restore health to those affected.

On October 8th -11th, hundreds of autism experts, parents, and professionals from around the world will gather in Dallas to attend the Autism Research Institute's Defeat Autism Now! Conference at the Dallas Fairmont Hotel. For more information or to schedule an interview please contact Lyn@autism.com.
