What is the incidence rate of Autism Spectrum Disorders in Canada?

As recently as 10 years ago, the accepted rate of autism/ASD was four to five in 10,000. According to the most recent findings of the CDC, 1 in 100 children are now being identified as having an ASD. You will hear some variation in the rate, but that tends to depend on whether the whole spectrum is being included or just autism, the most classic interpretation of this set of disorders.
