Health Tip to Predict Autism Among High-Risk Infants

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is a neurological and developmental disorder that begins early in childhood. Autism is called a spectrum disorder because it can have a range of symptoms. Boys are more likely to be autistic when compared to girls. A neuroimaging technique called Functional connectivity magnetic resonance imaging (fcMRI) may help to predict high-risk 6-month old infants who would develop autism spectrum disorders by age 2 years.
