Hearing tests could help identify babies with autism risk
July 27, 2016
An inexpensive and non-invasive test for hearing could help experts identify babies with autism risk.
Research shows that an inner ear deficiency could affect the ability to recognize speech in children with autism.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is characterised by impairments in social-communication skills and repetitive behaviours. Some of the earliest signs of ASD have to do with the ability to hear.
However, most tests rely on speech, and are therefore often ineffective in children who are very young or who are slow to start communicating.
The new research could help identify children at risk for autism at an early age. It can also help experts intervene earlier.
