There was a signifcant increase in the prevalence of children who had ever been diagnosed with any developmental disability. This increase was largely the result of an increase in the prevalence of children diagnosed with a developmental delay other than autism spectrum disorder or intellectual disability. There was not a signifcant change in the prevalence of diagnosed autism spectrum disorder or intellectual disability over the same time period.
