CDC Collecting Data On Teens With Autism.

January 28, 2019

Disability Scoop (1/28, Heasley) reports that the CDC has chosen “11 sites to be part of the next surveillance efforts through its Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network.” The agency will track “how adolescents first identified by the network as 8-year-olds in 2010 and 2012 have progressed.” The CDC said, “Tracking 16-year-old adolescents with ASD can also provide valuable information on transition planning in special education services and the planned trajectory for post-high school years.”
