Abstract

Autism affects 1 in 62 children in America, most of which are male. If detected in the early stages, treatment can help rewire the brain and help these children grow up with the ability to cope with this disability. Most new parents are unaware of what to look for if their child does have autism because the earliest signs of autism involve the absence of normal behaviors—not the presence of abnormal ones. In some cases, the earliest symptoms of autism are even misinterpreted as signs of a “good baby,” since the infant may seem quiet, independent, and undemanding. However, you can catch warning signs early if you know what to look for. My research will focus on the absence of normal behaviors, not the presence of abnormal ones in autistic children. I will use design to give parents a way to detect early warning signs.
