Sick Kids scientists figure out formula for predicting autism

"[Dr. Scherer is] one of the pre-eminent researchers in the autism genetics field," said Dr. Robert Ring, chief science officer at Autism Speaks.

Dr. Ring says there are no medicines for the core symptoms of autism, which are repetitive behaviour and difficulty with social interactions and communication. Two antipsychotic drugs, originally developed for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, are sometimes used to treat associated symptoms of autism. "The good news for families here is the activity in this area [drug development] is growing every day," says Dr. Ring.


Autism Statistics for 2014 - Research, Information & News

The new statistics raise significant concerns about access to care, because autism is a lifelong disorder and the need for services only begins at diagnosis, says Robert Ring, chief science officer for the advocacy group Autism Speaks.

"Behind these numbers are real people," he says. "Every one of these numbers is a family that's coming to terms with the implications of the diagnosis for the lifespan of their loved one."
"We need a plan to respond to these numbers, a national strategy for autism, and leadership has to come from Washington," because every congressional district is affected, says Ring.
There are still disparities in awareness and access to care among minorities and poorer families, which can have a direct impact on a child's outcome, he says.
