New method to test newborns for signs of autism

Raphael Rembrand’s son had autism, but it was diagnosed at the age of four years. By that time it was too late to take any effective corrective actions.

This led Raphael Rembrand to research and find a method to screen newborns for signs of autism. He is the founder and CTO of a one-man startup in Israel.

SensPD diagnostic process is the name of the procedure that can be used to test newborn babies for signs of autism in a noninvasive manner.

In fact, the same tools that are used to test infants’ hearing are used in the process.

The procedure is now ready for clinical trials.

Rembrand hopes that this will make a difference to babies born with autism as therapy can be started early on once diagnosed.
