The number of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in Singapore is slightly higher than the World Health Organization (WHO)’s global figure. And here’s more…👀
👁️🗨️WHO reports that one in 160 children has autism across the globe
👁️🗨️In Singapore, one in 150 children has autism
👁️🗨️In Singapore’s population of 5 million, about 50,000 individuals have been diagnosed with ASD
👁️🗨️Of these, 11,500 are under the age of 19
Though the numbers can be quite alarming, experts believe the bulk of the increase stems from a growing awareness of autism and changes to the condition’s diagnostic criteria.
