One in 36 (5%) 8-year-old children have been identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) according to an analysis of 2020 data published in CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) Surveillance Summaries.
The Study to Explore Early Development (SEED) is hoping to understand more about why
the incidence of ASD is increasing and how that affects families and children as they age.
Each study site across the country has multiple research scientists who are experts in certain areas.
