New Research Links Baby’s Early Babbles to Autism

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 1 in 110 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with autism or a related disorder. Today, the process to diagnose a child is extremely subjective as children are diagnosed after a medical specialist observes the child for an extended period of time and notes “autism characteristics.”

Scientists have recently begun to link a child’s early speech development with autism. According to this article, researchers are developing a computer program that will be able to identify children with autism early in life. And as the article states:

“Early diagnosis is crucial, because the earlier autistic children start intensive therapy, the more they improve.”
