This article balances the advantages of computer use which limits the importance of nonverbal behaviour but also warns of the dangers of over-use. It's an interesting tension.

According to experts, infants who show declining desire for eye contact within the first two and six months of their life were more likely to be diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) later.

This significant discovery could help pediatricians screen children for the developmental disorder and get them into earlier and more effective treatments.

Nichelle Plivelic's curator insight, March 26, 7:50 AM

A study suggests it may be possible to detect autism in infants because of signs they may show at such an early age, such as avoiding eye contact. Babies who showed these signs seemed to be most likely to have autism.

Temple Grandin: The world needs all kinds of minds

Temple Grandin, diagnosed with autism as a child, talks about how her mind works -- sharing her ability to "think in pictures," which helps her solve problems that neurotypical brains might miss. She makes the case that the world needs people on the autism spectrum: visual thinkers, pattern thinkers, verbal thinkers, and all kinds of smart geeky kids.

I really enjoyed her speech on autistic children of all ages. How we are able to understand their thinking in images and how delopmental ways they see things ;It is absoultely brilliant and insightful. We all have to realize naturally every child is diffrent under their spectrum and is unique in their own personality ....:)
