Bottom Line: From 2000-2010, the prevalence of ID without ASD was stable; during the same time, the prevalence of ASD with and without co-occurring ID increased by an average of 6.6% and 9.6% per year, respectively.ASD prevalence increases were found among both males and females, and among nearly all racial/ethnic subgroups and levels of intellectual ability.Average annual prevalence estimates from 1991-2010 underscore the significant community resources needed to provide early intervention and ongoing supports for children with ID (13.0 per 1,000), CP, (3.5 per 1,000), HL (1.4 per 1,000) and VI (1.3 in 1,000), with a growing urgency for children with ASD.

ABSTRACT
This study examined the prevalence and characteristics of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), cerebral palsy (CP), hearing loss (HL), intellectual disability (ID), and vision impairment (VI) over a 15-20 year time period, with specific focus on concurrent changes in ASD and ID prevalence. We used data from a population-based developmental disabilities surveillance program for 8-year-olds in metropolitan Atlanta. From 1991-2010, prevalence estimates of ID and HL were stable with slight increases in VI prevalence. CP prevalence was constant from 1993-2010. The average annual increase in ASD prevalence was 9.3% per year from 1996-2010, with a 269% increase from 4.2 per 1,000 in 1996 to 15.5 per 1,000 in 2010. From 2000-2010, the prevalence of ID without ASD was stable; during the same time, the prevalence of ASD with and without co-occurring ID increased by an average of 6.6% and 9.6% per year, respectively. ASD prevalence increases were found among both males and females, and among nearly all racial/ethnic subgroups and levels of intellectual ability. Average annual prevalence estimates from 1991-2010 underscore the significant community resources needed to provide early intervention and ongoing supports for children with ID (13.0 per 1,000), CP, (3.5 per 1,000), HL (1.4 per 1,000) and VI (1.3 in 1,000), with a growing urgency for children with ASD.

pone.0124120.g002: Prevalence of Co-occurring Intellectual Ability and Autism Spectrum Disorder, 1991–2010.

Mentions: Among children with ID across all surveillance years combined, 28% had co-occurring ASD, followed by CP (13%), VI (5%), and/or HL (3%). Whereas no trends were found in the prevalence of co-occurring ID and CP and/or VI from 1991–2010, a significant increase in the prevalence of co-occurring ID and ASD was found from 1996–2010 (Fig 2) and ID and HL from 1991–2010. The prevalence increase among children with co-occurring ID and HL ranged from 0.02 to 0.03 per 1,000; average annual increase of 2.4% (0.1, 4.8), largely attributable to higher estimates in 2006 (0.05) and 2008 (0.04).
