I’m heading down under!

Ok, not really, but I love what their academia community is doing for our community.

Professor Robin Young has been making some pretty significant strides all in the name of autism.  She developed a program that recognizes autism in one-year-olds.

In a recent interview with ABC News, she made the following statement:

She says her program – used in South Australia – works to get 12-month old children to engage in more social behaviour.

Professor Young feels that diagnoses at age 3 or 4 are too late for early intervention to be successful.

Imagine a world…

Where children are diagnosed within their first year of life.

Imagine a world…

Where parents don’t have to argue with pediatricians.

Imagine a world…

Where voices are heard and care is… readily available.

Imagine.
