Age of Autism Diagnosis May Depend on Symptoms: Study

MONDAY, April 15 (HealthDay News) — Specific symptoms influence the age at which children are diagnosed with autism, according to a new study.

Children who displayed only seven of 12 recognized autism symptoms were diagnosed more than four years later on average than kids with all 12 symptoms, researchers found.

“When it comes to the timing of autism identification, the symptoms actually matter quite a bit,” study lead author Matthew Maenner, of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, said in a university news release. read more

Researchers Study Cry Acoustics to Determine Risk for Autism

Behavior Imaging data (audio) shows promise to derive clues of autism –

Understanding the importance of early diagnosis, researchers at Women & Infants’ Brown Center for the Study of Children at Risk in collaboration with researchers at University of Pittsburgh have been studying the cry acoustics of 6-month-old infants. Their research has recently been published in Autism Research. “Because we can measure various aspects of babies’ cries from the earliest days of life, it may be possible to use this technique to identify risk for neurological problems such as autism long before we can detect behavioral differences,” said Stephen J. Sheinkopf, PhD.
