Language Delay Leaves Signature in Brains of Adults with Autism

Researchers propose that clear differences in brain anatomy may flag autism subtypes and guide personalized support and treatment
September 24, 2014

A new study suggests that a common characteristic of autism – language delay in early childhood – results in lasting differences in the brain. Understanding such differences may lead to the identification of autism subtypes and the development of more-personalized supports and treatments, the authors propose.
