Latest news on the autism front: Researchers announce positive results on a new MRI scan that detects autism.

The new findings appear online in the journal Autism Research. For further reading, visit McClean Hospital.

The preliminary results are encouraging.  If the specialized MRI brain scans are proven conclusively to be accurate, those at risk or who are suspected to have neurological disorders can be objectively diagnosed early on.  For my patients, such scans will aid early development and implementation of therapy plans to target the child's specific area of dysfunction.  Commencing neurological therapies at an earlier stage provides those with autism a better chance to maximize their full potential.
