New research from Rutgers University estimates one quarter of children with autism are undiagnosed.

The findings are based on the education and medical records of more than 260-thousand 8-year olds.

Of the nearly 45-hundred children who showed symptoms of autism, 25% were not diagnosed or received services.

Most of these undiagnosed kids were black or hispanic males.

The study was led by researchers at Rutgers University and published in 'Autism Research.'
