Ignoring name may mean autism

Year-old babies who do not respond when their name is called may be more likely to be diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or other developmental problem at age 2, making this simple test a potential early indicator for such conditions, according to a UC Davis study published in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine. Autism is usually diagnosed around age 3 or 4, when intervention begins.
