By: Anderson Center for Autism
POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - Aug. 19, 2013 - PRLog -- Earlier this year, key members of Anderson Center for Autism took notice of a study released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, pointing to a new and very alarming statistic.

Published on March 20, 2013, the study released by the CDC states that, “Based on parent reports, the prevalence of diagnosed ASD in 2011-2012 was estimated to be 2.00% for children aged 6-17. This prevalence estimate (1 in 50) is significantly higher that the estimate (1.16%, or 1 in 86) for children in that group of 2007.”

A shock to all, the information has raised questions from families, the medical community, organizations serving individuals on the spectrum, and others.

Amidst the frenzy of “who, what, when and how’s,” Anderson’s leadership team have remained dedicated to gaining more insight on the matter.

Stephen J. Blumberg, Ph.D., Acting Director for Science at The National Center for Health Statistics at the, lead the study among many other notable colleagues. Anderson is pleased to announce an interview with Dr. Blumberg will air on their Hudson Valley radio show, “1 in 88.”

Serving as a powerful platform for the both the Anderson family and the community at large, “1 in 88” interviews leading physicians, public figures and direct care professionals. 

Listeners are provided the opportunity to obtain a deeper understanding of what these numbers mean and how they correspond with the 1 in 88 statistic. Anderson continues to educate the Hudson Valley community, along with the help of Dr. Blumberg as the first guest of many medical minds to speak on the matter.
