It’s known that children who have been diagnosed with autism do not make eye contact, but is it possible to find these signs at an earlier age? Researchers at Emory University have discovered an eye tracking software that shows where your baby is looking and has proven to find changes already happening that may detect autism.
Studying babies as early as two months old, these researchers have found that by six months children with autism spend less time looking at eyes. This technology can now help identify autism before a parent or doctor sees signs.
Note: Be aware this isn’t something you can see with the naked eye and should constantly be worrying about. Your babies physician will use this screening over the years to make sure they detect anything out of the ordinary for a better long term outcome!
