The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention recently reported that 1 in 88 children in the United States has an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). More people than ever before are being diagnosed with an ASD. Join us for this special webinar in which speakers from the CDC will discuss the new numbers, as well as what you can do to help! This is a webinar that you definitely do not want to miss! Register today!

Time: Tuesday, April 17, 2012, from 2:00 to 3:00 PM EST
Speakers: Jon Baio, Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network, CDC
Katie K. Green, “Learn the Signs. Act Early” Program, CDC

CDC recently reported the increasing prevalence of autism. By studying the number of people diagnosed with an ASD over time, we can find out if the number is rising, dropping, or staying the same. This also makes it possible to compare the number of children with ASDs in different areas of the country and different groups of people. Join us to hear about the latest findings from the CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network!

This webinar will also discuss:

  • CDC’s “Learn the Signs. Act Early.” Program, which offers free tools and other educational materials to help parents and professionals monitor a child’s early development and take action on concerns.
  • how you can use or help promote these free resources to help families in your community identify developmental delay and get their child the services and support they might need, at the earliest age possible.
