1 in 36 Children Affected by Autism

Recent CDC report identifies 1 in 36 children as having Autism.


Written by Rebekah Poe, M.Ed.,  an award-winning former special education teacher and national teaching conference presenter from Alabama.

According to a recent report from the CDC, 1 in 36 children is affected by Autism. This is an increase from the earlier statistic of 1 in 44 that were previously identified.

With an increase in prevalence, one can surmise that soon schools will begin to see an uptick in students with Autism receiving special education services within both special education and general education classrooms.

Are your classrooms prepared?

Digitability's comprehensive curriculum was created with this population in mind. Everything we do, from our differentiated resources to our scripted lesson plans, is designed to utilize the best evidence-based practices for teaching students with autism to generalize skills across environments and situations. Our curriculum is designed to improve expressive and receptive language, task attendance and completion, social and emotional skills, and much much more.


We do this by teaching skills- not in isolation where they will be unlikely to transfer- but instead Digitability's one of a kind curriculum teaches skills through real world simulations using the best evidence-based practices.
