Autism Treatment – Early Diagnosis is Key

watch now

April is Autism Awareness Month and Lisa Dworkin, Director of Clinical Services at Autism Home Support Services, wants to help the larger community understand autism, its prevalence, and the importance of early diagnosis. Because the human brain develops fastest from 6-24 months of age, ultra-early diagnosis may provide the best treatment. While autism screenings are currently conducted around 18 months, Lisa thinks individuals could benefit greatly from diagnosis as early as 6 months.
