“Late talkers” make up 15% of the toddler population. The language characteristics of the late talkers are not reflective of typical language development in the areas of word learning, phonology, morphology/syntax, and social skills. Dr. Michelle MacRoy-Higgins discusses why early intervention is important to provide speech and language services to late talkers.
Dr. Ruth Nass, M.D. is administering a study of the effects of seratonin medication on 2 to 6-year-old autistic children. Studies show that brain levels of serotonin are low in many young children with autism, but by age 6, serotonin levels increase to the point where they are similar to typically developing children. The study examines serotonin replacement during critical developmental years.
