A new free resource aims to help families and professionals identify the early signs of autism spectrum disorder in very young children. “About Autism in Toddlers.” a Web-based tool, features videos on core features of autism, challenges to early identification, how to recognize unusual behaviors and other information.
The tool, part of Autism Navigator, includes side-by-side video comparisons of two similar-age toddlers—one diagnosed with autism, one typically developing—to illustrate how they behave differently in the same play situation.
Autism Navigator is a collection of tools and courses that integrate current research into an interactive Web platform with extensive video footage to illustrate effective evidence-based practice. Created by faculty and staff in the Autism Institute at the Florida State University College of Medicine, it also offers professional development courses for early intervention providers and primary care providers.
