Description

Research has indicated that educational diagnoses can vary from clinical diagnoses of autism spectrum disorder. This study provides an updated analysis using 2014–2015 IDEA data compared with the contemporary CDC prevalence rate. Results show a greater discrepancy in educational diagnoses for girls versus boys compared with the clinical diagnoses. For ethnicity/race, the rates of educational diagnosis appeared to mirror the population proportions of Asian American and Hispanic children.
