Work in our lab and collaborative work with other research groups have resulted in a number of discoveries. For example, we have found that infants developing autism are less likely to respond to their own names as early as 9 months of age. We have also found that younger siblings of children with autism are not only at higher risk for autism, but also for ADHD and vice versa – younger siblings of children with ADHD are at higher risk for ADHD, but also for autism. This suggests that later-born siblings of children with ADHD or autism should be monitored for both conditions. Finally, we have begun to find that there may be some overlap between early signs of autism and risk for ADHD which may wax and wane across development as these conditions unfold.
