Title: NHU Report on the Prevention of Disabilities

Read our
NHU Report on the Prevention of Disabilities - Spring 2015 (http://www.new-horizons.org/pdf/pr0315.pdf)
Read about the rising prevalence of ASD's, the impact of developmental disabilities and the need for data.

We all know to move forward on any problem facing mankind requires research.  We are stating, in order to protect children of the future, newborns, their parents and society from disabilities, we should broaden the scope of data collected through the U.S. Standard Certificate of Live Birth. This update to our existing data system would be more easily adopted and is necessary to more effectively meet current research needs for the purpose of preventing disabilities.   Existing data collected is vague and not in sync with the rapid advances in medicine for today.
