This condition is typically diagnosed by the time a child is 3 years of age, as the early warning signs are hallmark for diagnosis. The number of children diagnosed with autism has grown in the modern day. In the 1970s, about one in every 2,000 children had autism. Today, one in only 150 children are estimated to be living with autism.
