Autism May Develop Over Long Period

Posted: Updated:

New research suggests autism does not appear suddenly in young children, but instead develops over time during infancy.

Using a special form of MRI, scientists at the University of North Carolina were able to detect significant differences in brain development starting at age 6 months.

The babies in the study had older autistic siblings.
