Autism-Open Access is associated with the "4th International Conference & Exhibition on Neurology & Therapeutics" (Neurology-2015) , which will be held during July 27-29, 2015 at Naples, Italy, focusing on “Novel Therapies in Neurosciences and Neurological Disorders”

Advances in autism diagnosis

Autism is a common neurodevelopmental disorder observed in children and elders. The diagnosis of autism has taken a big leap in the recent past. Earlier ASD is diagnosed by a group of specialists including developmental paediatrician, neurologist, psychiatrist or psychologist.

Although autistic accouchement are built-in with accustomed or smaller-than-normal brains, they abide a aeon of accelerated advance amid ages 6 and 14 months, so that by about age four, their academician tends to be almighty ample for their age. Genetic defects in academician advance factors may advance to this aberrant academician development.

Impact Factor : 3.52*

*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times the are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 than, impact factor = Y/X
