Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v29 n3 p213-24 Jun 1999
Retrospective analysis of videotape recordings taken at 9 to 12 months of 11 children with autism, 10 with developmental disabilities, and 11 typically developing children found that nine behavioral items, in combination, discriminated the three groups 94 percent of the time. Results support early identification of autism and that infant assessment should include sensory processing/sensory-motor functions in addition to social responses. (Author/DB)
