The research examined brain scans of babies who had an older brother or sister diagnosed as autistic. It found that certain features were associated with scans from babies who were later diagnosed as autistic as young children. The researchers hope that the finding will result in earlier diagnosis and interventions for young children.
What are your thoughts on using a tool such as part of the diagnostic process? Do you think it could be useful in identifying children who may be not otherwise get a diagnosis until later?
