Korean Study on Prevalence of Autism: Findings and Implications

The Epidemiology of Autism Spectrum Disorder has long been a matter of interest. The particular focus of this interest has been related to the prevalence of this clinical syndrome. Since Autism was identified as a distinct syndrome by Dr. Leo Kanner in 1942, the has been considerable speculation about the actual prevalence of ASD and whether increasing incidence is contributing to the rise in prevalence. This is because studies over the past 40-50 years have reported progressive larger ASD prevalence with original rates reported to be 5 cases/10,000 with more later studies reporting prevalence ranging from 0.6-1.1%. More recently, the first complete population study of ASD reported a prevalence of 2.64% or 1 in 38. Initially regarded as an astounding large prevalence, careful examination provides interesting insights into the phenomenon of ASD and sets the stage for further investigations and models for intervention. We examine autism epidemiology in detail and explore its implications for future research and clinical practice.
