Brenda Zamora's curator insight, May 10, 2017 12:59 AM

This article has to do with why it is important to diagnose Autism in the earlier stages of a child. it also mentions how sometimes due to early diagnosis some children will "grow out of Autism" and not fit the criteria for those children under Autism. It is important to diagnose at an early stage, but sometimes doctors are reluctant to do so because sometimes children may be too young.
