Autistic Kids 9 Times More Likely to Have ER Visit

BALTIMORE -- New research has found that children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are nine times more likely to be at a hospital emergency room for psychiatric reasons.
The study found that severe behaviors tied to aggression were the leading cause of emergency visits among autistic children.
The researchers also found that the likelihood of a psychiatric emergency room visit was higher if a child carried private health insurance rather than medical assistance.
