The Ministry of Health says that one out of 93 children in Sri Lanka are diagnosed with autism.

Honorary Consultant Pediatrician and Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Kelaniya, Dr. Samanmali Sumanasena said that there has been a growth in autism among children over the past decade.

Dr. Sumanasena added that by subjecting children who have been diagnosed with autism for treatment, its effects could be minimised to a greater extent.
