As part of Autism Awareness month, the Icahn school of medicine brought out this info graphic. We thought we would share it because it contains a lot of interesting statistics about the scale of Autism in the USA. 1 in every 100 individual is now on the Autism Spectrum. This is quite a big number, whether you put this down to the increased availability of diagnosis or an increase in the environmental factors that are believed to cause Autism.

What is interesting is the statistic that the younger siblings of individuals with Autism also have a 15-20% risk of developing the condition.
