Colorado Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Project
The Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network is a group of programs funded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to determine the prevalence of the autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) in their areas. It includes:
- New Jersey.
- North Carolina.
The ADDM Network’s methodology is a multiple-source, records-based monitoring system. Its goals are to:
- Determine the prevalence of ASD in the communities listed above.
- Describe the population of children with ASD.
- Compare ASD prevalence in different groups of children and different areas of the country.
- Identify changes in ASD prevalence over time.
Colorado-ADDM is a partnership between us and JFK Partners at the University of Colorado Denver. Its goal is to provide an ongoing estimate of the prevalence of ASD among 8-year-old and 4-year-old children in metro Denver (Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson counties).
