Data collected between 2015 and 2018 by the National Heath Interview Survey indicated the prevalence of any developmental disability among U.S. children aged 3-17 years was 17.8 percent.

Developmental disabilities included attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder, blindness, cerebral palsy, moderate to profound hearing loss, learning disability, intellectual disability, seizures in the past 12 months, stuttering or stammering in the past 12 months, or any other developmental delay.
