Differences in Brainwaves of Children with Autism Detectable as Early as Six Months

Autism research fascinates me, regardless of the angle of the research or who funded the study. I love to read about what is going on out there in the world of autism and so it is no surprise that this article in the BBC caught my attention. Evidently the results of a new study reveal that there are detectable differences in the brainwaves of children with autism, when compared to their typically developing peers, as early as six months of age.

Here is an excerpt from the story:

“His team looked for the earliest signs of autism in 104 children aged between six and 10 months. Half were known to be at risk of the disorder because they had on older sibling who had been diagnosed with autism. The rest were low risk.”
