abstract

  • The age dependence of some of the behavioral features leading to an autism diagnosis, as well as the inverse association between age at identification and number of behavioral features documented, have implications for efforts to improve early identification. Progress in achieving early identification and provision of services for children with autism may be limited for those with fewer ASD behavioral features, as well as features likely to be detected at later ages.
