This presentation will focus on the emergence of Autism Disorders (ASD) from infancy through 36 months of age.  Data from a longitudinal, prospective study of ASD will be shared. Evidence of social, language, communication, and motor disruption in infants at risk for ASD, and the trajectory of change within these developmental systems from 6-36 months within children who do and do not have ASD will be shared.  The different developmental trajectories associated with early versus later manifestation of ASD will be presented, as will evidence of the progressive nature of ASD.  Videotaped examples will be used to highlight the differences between typical development and ASD.  Early predictors of ASD and implications for early detection of ASD will be discussed.  Information about screening for ASD in toddlers and about the evidence-based Early Achievements intervention for toddlers with ASD will be presented.     

 AUDIENCE:  Early Intervention providers and administrators, early childhood providers and administrators, and families of young children with ASD
