The eyes have the answer

The question: Will my child have autism?

When this video was produced in spring 2014, one out of 84 kids in Georgia had autism or an autism-related disorder.

Today, in 2018, that ratio has grown to 1 in 59.

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 in life. Because of this breakthrough, new interventions can be created to help children with autism much sooner in their development.
