OBJECTIVE: To fill gaps in crucial data needed for health and educational planning, we determined the prevalence of developmental disabilities in US children and in selected populations for a recent 12-year period. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: We used data on children aged 3 to 17 years from the 1997–2008 National Health Interview Surveys, which are ongoing nationally representative samples of US households. Parent-reported diagnoses of the following were included: attention deficit hyperactivity…

Prevalence and Trends of Developmental Disabilities among Children in the United States: 2009–2017
TLDR
The prevalence of developmental disability among US children aged 3 to 17 years increased between 2009 and 2017, and changes by demographic and socioeconomic subgroups may be related to improvements in awareness and access to health care.
The 12-year prevalence and trends of childhood disabilities in Australia: Findings from the Survey of Disability, Aging and Carers
TLDR
With the anticipated rise in psychological related disability among Australian children, there is a need to ensure availability of a flexible and responsive model of service delivery for this population and respite service coverage may need to be substantially increased to meet children and caregivers’ needs.
Neurodevelopmental Disabilities in Canadian Children: Prevalence Data from the National Longitudinal Study of Children and Youth
TLDR
Prevalence rates of NDD in Canadian children show an incremental trend across three cycles in four conditions covered in the survey, except for cerebral palsy, which showed an increasing trend over the years from 1994 to 1999.
The 12‐year prevalence and trends of childhood disabilities in Australia: Findings from the Survey of Disability, Aging and Carers
TLDR
With the anticipated rise in psychological related disability among Australian children, there is a need to ensure availability of a flexible and responsive model of service delivery for this population and respite service coverage may need to be substantially increased to meet children and caregivers' needs.
Prevalence and Correlates of Elopement in a Nationally Representative Sample of Children with Developmental Disabilities in the United States
TLDR
Wanderers are more likely not to realize when there is danger, to have difficulty distinguishing between strangers and familiar people, to show sudden mood changes, to over-react to everything/everyone, to get angry quickly, toget lost easily, and to panic in new situations or if change occurs.
Trends in Special Education Eligibility Among Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder, 2002-2010
TLDR
Evaluating trends in special education eligibility among 8-year-old children with ASD identified in the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network found many received special education services under other categories, and racial/ethnic disparities persisted.
Changes in prevalence of parent-reported autism spectrum disorder in school-aged U.S. children: 2007 to 2011-2012.
TLDR
The results of the cohort analyses increase confidence that differential survey measurement error over time was not a major contributor to observed changes in the prevalence of parent-reported ASD.
Prevalence and Variation of Developmental Screening and Surveillance in Early Childhood

Prevalence and health impact of developmental disabilities in US children.
TLDR
The impact on school performance was most pronounced for children reported to have learning disabilities, and future research efforts should be focused on ways to reduce the impact of these developmental disabilities on quality of life.
Birth Weight and Health and Developmental Outcomes in US Children, 1997–2005
TLDR
Ass associations were strongest for very low birth weight, children with “normal” birth weights were more likely than those with birth weights of 3,500–3,999 g to have mental retardation and to receive special education services.
Health care use and health and functional impact of developmental disabilities among US children, 1997-2005.
OBJECTIVE To present nationally representative estimates of health-related limitations, needs, and service use among US children with and without developmental disabilities (DDs). DESIGN
National Autism Prevalence Trends From United States Special Education Data
TLDR
Cohort curves suggest that autism prevalence has been increasing with time, as evidenced by higher prevalences among younger birth cohorts, and the narrowing in vertical separation of the cohort curves in recent years may mark a slowing in the autism prevalence increase.
Prevalence of four developmental disabilities among children aged 8 years--Metropolitan Atlanta Developmental Disabilities Surveillance Program, 1996 and 2000.
TLDR
The prevalence of these four select developmental disabilities in MaddSP was higher in 1996 than the annual average prevalence estimates for these disabilities during previous MADDSP study years; the highest increase was observed among children with mental retardation; however, prevalence estimates during 2000 were more consistent with the estimates from the early 1990s.
Prevalence of Parent-Reported Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder Among Children in the US, 2007
TLDR
The observed point-prevalence of autism spectrum disorder in the US is higher than previous US estimates, and more inclusive survey questions, increased population awareness, and improved screening and identification by providers may partly explain this finding.
Analysis of prevalence trends of autism spectrum disorder in Minnesota.
TLDR
It is found that federal and state administrative changes favoring identification of autism spectrum disorders corresponded in time with the increasing rates, and this may imply that autism spectrum disorder has been underdiagnosed in the past.
Prevalence of Cerebral Palsy in 8-Year-Old Children in Three Areas of the United States in 2002: A Multisite Collaboration
TLDR
The similarities in prevalence rates and patterns of cerebral palsy reported for 8-year-old children at 3 geographically distinct sites provide evidence of the reliability of the surveillance methods used by the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network.
Prevalence, recognition, and treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in a national sample of US children.
TLDR
Poor children are most likely to meet criteria for ADHD yet are least likely to receive consistent pharmacotherapy, and the wealthiest children were more likely than the poorest to receive regular medication treatment.
