The earlier autism is detected, the better. New technology at Children's Hospital Boston has made exciting progress, as they believe they have developed a test for autism that could be used to detect it as early as six months old. The fault lines of generation and gender are explored. Accuracy depends on age and gender. The test was more accurate for girls at the age of six months, where as it proved more accurate for boys at nine months. Moreover, this article illustrates technology's ever present impact on society. If the test persists and proves itself both accurate and effective, it could become a "clinically useful psychiatric biomarker". This could lead to a foundation of "higher-level social and communicative skills" for autistic children everywhere.
