South East European Conference on Autism
In the last decade, we’ve seen a great development in the field of science in terms of studying the causes and novel medical treatments for autism spectrum disorder.
In recent years, we have been bombarded with numbers related to the COVID19 epidemic, accustomed to the number of infected, dead, vaccinated. In addition to COVID19, there are other epidemics. One of them is the autism epidemic.
At the moment, in addition to the current figures of the American CDC (1 in 54 children), and which refer to school-age children, (i.e., not to those born in the last 6 years), other statistics are available. One of those is the statistics of the American state of New Jersey. As the most affected federal state, it records a percentage of 1 in 32 (still, school-age children). By comparison, at this point (September 2021) the percentage of people so far infected with the Covid-19 virus in the world is 1 in 35. So, New Jersey has a bigger problem with autism in children than the world with the COVID-19 virus.Show More
