Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

OT practitioners can play a role in identifying children at risk for ASD. Early signs of ASD have been proposed across multiple developmental domains. The purpose of this study was to compare clinical data across domains for high-risk premature infants who were later diagnosed with ASD to those who were not. Results indicate that early development between these two groups is similar, but there are clinically and statistically significant differences seen at two years.
