6 on Health: Eye test could eventually help diagnose autism
It's an eye test that could be used to eventually help diagnose autism.
The test measures rapid eye movements, which can identify issues in an area of the brain that play a big role in emotional and social development.
For now, the test is being used on children between ages 10 and 16 who are on the autism spectrum.
However, researchers hope the test will soon be a tool for early detection of autism.
Autism affects one in 68 children in the United States.
