The Faroe Islands are a cluster of 18 rocky, volcanic islands which form a self-governing archipelago, part of the Kingdom of Denmark. They are located in the open seas betwen the UK, Iceland, Denmark and Norway. The various islands are connected by road tunnels, ferries, causeways and bridges, and have a total population of 49,469 as of 2013.
This is the first study of the prevalence of
PDA in a general population, included as part of a total population study of suspected ASD (autism) in the Faroe Islands.
QUOTE: “Clearly, unless the Faroe Islands is an extremely atypical population from which no generalised conclusions can be drawn, PDA/EDA is quite common in ASD.”
