This April, the Multicultural Health Institute recognizes National Autism Month. According to the CDC, Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability caused by differences in the brain. Some people with ASD have a known difference, such as a genetic condition. Other causes are not yet known. Scientists believe there are multiple causes of ASD that act together to change the most common ways people develop. We still have much to learn about these causes and how they impact people with ASD. 

ASD occurs in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups. It is more than 4 times more common among boys than among girls. Prior to 2016, the percentage of children identified with ASD by 8 years of age was higher among White children than among Black or Hispanic children. In recent years, differences in identification of ASD by race and ethnicity began to narrow. In 2023, for the first time, the ADDM Network data found the percentage of 8-year-old children identified with ASD was higher among Black, Hispanic, and Asian or Pacific Islander (A/PI) children compared with White children.

On April 10, we will pay special attention to autism and listen to Dr. Stacy Greeter, MD present on Autism acceptance. You can register for the event here: http://tinyurl.com/mhihealingcircle2024. We look forward to seeing you soon!
