Dr. Mike: Latest Autism Study Results


A new study on children with autism may change the way we think about the disease.

It found symptoms are not present at 6 months of age but then emerge gradually during the second half of the first year of life.

Scientists compared the behavior of children who have siblings diagnosed with autism or were "high-risk" to those who had no family members with autism, or were "low-risk."

Another study out Tuesday found new treatment for adults with autism. It is the so-called "love" hormone.

Dr, Mike Cirigliano joined the Fox 29 News at 5 to discuss what parents should take away from the findings and how the adult research could benefit children.
