One of our goals at the Azrielli national centre for autism and neurodevelopment research is to assess the longitudinal development of children with autism as they receive currently available treatments and interventions in the Israeli healthcare and education systems. As part of this large project, we recently published a paper demonstrating large differences in the development of social communication abilities across children diagnosed at different ages. Specifically, children diagnosed before the 2.5 years of age improved 3 times more on ADOS social affect scores in comparison to children diagnosis after this age. In the talk I will mostly discuss the results of this study and briefly cover two other studies comparing the development of children with ASD placed in mainstream versus special education settings.
