Living with Autism: Improving Quality of Life through Autism Research and Treatment Autism prevalence and statistics: a lifelong challenge

One in 59 children is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) – almost triple the number in 2000. Early intervention creates a more positive trajectory for affected children. Yet autism remains a lifelong condition and challenge. Many adults with autism are unable to find meaningful employment, form lasting friendships or live independently.
