Autism Screening By Age Two


No matter how you look at it autism rates are going through the roof. Whether these increasing numbers are due to more diagnoses or can be linked to adverse reactions to vaccines, more and more children are now autistic. Unfortunately the numbers are so large and growing every year that the American Academy of Pediatrics is now urging all children be screened for autism by the age of 2.

If you notice subtle signs that your toddler may have autism it would be in their best interest to have them screened now, so a support system can be set in place and therapy can start immediately.
