New Research Helps Unravel Autism

New studies are helping researchers get inside the minds of children with autism.

Researchers studied how toddlers with autism analyzed photos of faces, and compared them to children developing normally who looked at the same pictures.

They found children with autism tended to look at features more than faces, for example they focused on hair, ears and necks.

The same experts found autistic children did not have a problem looking at faces in photos, but they did have trouble focusing on faces in person.
