Why is this relevant?
In India, between ages two and nine, 1 out of every 66 children has autism. An initial study indicated that over 10 million children suffer from autism in India. – Data source : Dr N.K. Arora, executive director of the International Clinical Epidemiology Network Trust (INCLEN)
According to the CDC, the prevalence of autism has increased from 1 in 150 in the year 2000, to 1 in 68 in the year 2010.
The rising prevalence, combined with lack of concrete knowledge regarding the pathophysiology, causes, treatments and prognosis of this condition make it very relevant to the society today.
