About Autism

In 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network reported that approximately 1 in 88 children in the United States has an Autism Spectrum Disorder. This represents an increase in the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders compared to earlier in the decade when prevalence was cited as 1 in 110 and 1 in 166. In the 1980’s autism prevalence was reported as 1 in 10,000. In the nineties, prevalence was 1 in 2500 and later 1 in 1000. It is problematic to compare autism rates over the last three decades, as the diagnostic criteria for autism have changed with each revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM). In 1983 the DSM did not recognize PDD-NOS or Asperger's syndrome, and the criteria for autistic disorder (AD) were more restrictive.

ASDs are almost 5 times more common among boys (1 in 54) than among girls (1 in 252) and they are reported in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups. Studies have been conducted in several continents (Asia, Europe, and North America) that report a prevalence rate of approximately 1 percent. A 2011 study reported a 2.6 percent prevalence of autism in South Korea.

  •  1 in 50 children in the United States has an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
  •  1 in 31 boys ( 5 times more common in boys than girls)
  •  1 in 252 girls
  • Reported in all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are a complex set of neurological disorders that severely impair social, communicative and cognitive functions.
  • Individuals with ASD may have cognitive impairments, though some have typical or above average IQs. 
  • Typical ASD behaviors include stereotyped actions (hand flapping, body rocking), insistence on sameness, resistance to change and, in some cases, aggression or self-injury.
  • Between 30-50% of people with autism have seizures.
  • The cost of providing care for a person with autism in the U.S. is an estimated $1.4 million over their lifetime, according to a study funded by advocacy group Autism Speaks.
  •  For those with autism who are impacted with intellectual disabilities (with an IQ of 70 or less) -- nearly half of the autistic population -- the cost jumps to $2.3 million.
  • On average autism costs a family $60,000 a year

About the Center

The Autism Resource Center was conceived in 1996 by a group of parents to serve primarily as an information and referral service for children and families affected by disorders within the Autism Spectrum; Autism, PDD NOS and Asperger Syndrome. The Center services the eastern portion of DDS Central-West Region. This encompasses North Central, Worcester, and South Valley areas. All totaled there are 65 towns within the Autism Resource Center's service area. However, families who live outside our service area may choose to utilize our Center, The Division of Autism requests that families choose and utilize the Center that best suits their family's needs and not utilize multiple state funded Centers.

This program is funded by the Department of Developmental Services (
DDS ) and administered by Horace Mann Educational Associates, Inc. HMEA recognizes that family participation is critical to the success of it’s programs, a Family Advisory Board serves as the voice of families to the Center.

Information and referral, education, family support and networking are vital services the Center provides. The Autism Resource Center is designed to help parents, educators, service providers, and medical professionals provide effectively for those diagnosed within the Autism Spectrum. The Center does not recommend any single program or treatment but instead offers information on a great variety of issues giving parents and professionals what they need to make educated choices.
