(SEOUL) -- A new study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry Monday suggests that more children have autism than previously thought.
Researchers in South Korea examined 55,000 children in Seoul. They found that one in 38 were somewhere on the autism spectrum.
The study suggests that similar examinations of a total population would raise estimates. In the United States, autism is estimated to be found in one percent of the population, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
