Workshop report: Regression in autism — SFARI

A number of studies suggest that a subset of children with autism make significant social and language gains in the first year of life, and then experience a dramatic loss of skills.
Some research suggests that these children may be a unique subgroup within the autism spectrum, distinct from those who show more gradual declines.

This is what happened to our son who was diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum at age 3. We've always said that the onset of Regression was at age 2. Parents, you know your child. It's not always 'the terrible 2s', an ear infection, shyness, etc... You must be persistent, consistent, document and be relentless about getting a diagnosis, answers, solutions and therapies. We find that Early Intervention works!
