CDC Expands Autism Tracking
[Source: Disability Scoop]
With autism prevalence continuing to rise, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it will monitor the number of children with the developmental disability in more communities across the nation.
The federal agency is adding five new sites to its Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring, or ADDM, Network this spring, bringing the total to 16. Researchers with the network regularly comb through health and education records for children in their communities at certain ages to assess how many are on the spectrum. The CDC relies on these findings to estimate how pervasive the developmental disability is.
