Pre-symptomatic detection and intervention for autism spectrum disorder

No Monument Location

Early intervention can dramatically improve outcomes for children with autism. However, a significant challenge has been the identification and treatment of such children as early as possible. Wolff’s research addresses this issue through the prospective, longitudinal study of early behavioral and brain development. Currently, he is investigating precursors of maladaptive sensory and repetitive behaviors associated with autism, developing novel approaches to infant intervention, and refining ground-breaking methods to detect autism in infancy.
