A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Pediatrics claims the costs in the US of caring for individuals with the highest needs are $2.4m for each and every individual. This also does not include those who do not have the highest needs, so the effect of less severe autistic conditions is not included.
Autism costs the UK at least £32bn a year in terms of treatment, lost earnings, and care and support for children and adults with ASD, according to the study. This compares with £12bn for cancer, £8bn for heart disease and £5bn for stroke: Autism costs ‘£32bn per year’ in UK
