Einstein in the News interviews Lisa Shulman, M.D., about new CDC estimates that 1 in 68 children have autism, a 30 percent jump from the 2008 estimate. Dr. Shulman noted that clinicians are seeing and diagnosing more children who previously had more limited access to evaluation, such as Hispanics, African-Americans and children who do well in school. Dr. Shulman is associate professor of clinical pediatrics and director of infant and toddler services at Einstein’s Children’s Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center and an attending physician at The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore.
