In the Spotlight: Detecting Autism

 

We are highlighting a very interesting study recently published in the journal Nature.  In this study, researchers found that brain scans can be used to detect Autism in children long before any symptoms begin to manifest. This study could potentially lead to earlier testing and the introductions of therapies much sooner than currently being done. While still very early, this potential breakthrough is certainly something to keep your eye on as more research is conducted.  Please take a look at the report from the BBC, link below, which outlines the study in greater detail.


If you wish to learn more about Autism Spectrum Disorder, take a look below at our brand new course on Autism.
