Research: Early Intervention may reduce impact of Autism

A new pilot study suggests that Early Intervention in children  reduces the impact of autism later in their life.  According to Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders.

“Seven children diagnosed with autism at ages 6 months to 15 months who underwent a variety of interventions by parents and healthcare providers had lower rates of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) at 36 months than a group of children with similar symptoms who did not undergo the interventions, according to Sally Rogers, PhD, of the University of California Davis, and colleagues.”

The researchers stressed the study was too small to draw definitive conclusions, but may we encourage you to be active with infants who you believe may be at risk for ASD.
