Neurodevelopmental Disorders Among Publicly or Privately Insured Children in the United States

CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: In this population-based cohort study, a relatively high incidence of and co-occurrence of neurodevelopmental disorders as well as the disparity in incidence and timing of diagnosis by insurance type and race and ethnicity were found. These findings represent important public health concerns and underscore the need for timely and accessible developmental assessments and educational services to help reduce the burden of these disorders.
