For many years, the diagnosis of autism has centered on a child's social interaction--from poor eye contact to lack of language skills. Although the autism community agrees that early intervention is key to effective treatment, the telltale signs of this disorder usually don't reveal themselves until the age of two or three. But what if it were possible to detect the potential for autism within the first year of life?

Osnat and Philip Teitelbaum have worked for nearly two decades to establish ways of detecting signs of potential autism or Asperger's syndrome by examining early motor development. This book first provides general information about the history of autism and The Ladder of Motor Development. Each of four chapters then examines one motor milestone--righting, sitting, crawling, or walking--contrasting typical and atypical development so that it's easy to recognize unusual patterns of movement.
