The number of young people living with autism spectrum disorder is growing rapidly.

A new study has revealed a nearly 52% spike in autism spectrum disorder prevalence among children and teens in the US between 2017 and 2020.

The findings from public health researchers at Guangdong Pharmaceutical University in China were published in JAMA Pediatrics Monday (July 4).

Study authors did not discuss potential causes for the stark rise.
