Can You See Signs of Autism in Newborns?

I found this really, really interesting short clip and wanted to share with you.  What do you think?  I think it's worth a shot and early intervention is so important.



IF you can't see video go HERE.

Hi,

I am enjoying the information on your site, as a 30 year old woman recently putting together the pieces of this puzzle that has been my life with (undiagnosed) AS.

I watched the video and agree with your comments about early intervention being key. I can only imagine it would have made a truckload of difference in my life.

The only thing in the video I take issue with is the phrase "make" the child use eye contact with you. This sounds very forced and traumatic, I know if adults had "made" me use eye contact in a harsh way it would have sent me further into my little withdrawn world . Using bribes and treats is ok though! :D

Thanks!
