Spotting autism sooner
When this video was produced in spring 2014, one out of 84 kids in Georgia had autism or an autism-related disorder. Since then, that ratio has grown to 1 in 64. The problem is, autism is typically not diagnosed until a child becomes a toddler. But GRA Eminent Scholar Ami Klin and colleagues at the Marcus Autism Center of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University developed eye-tracking technologies and methods that could help detect autism in children as young as two months old. Their research is historic: Autism has never been observed so early. Because of this breakthrough, new intervention strategies can be developed in the future to help children with autism much earlier in life.
