Autism is costly to treat, especially when it is severe. Thus, early identification and early treatment can vastly change the trajectory of a child's life and ultimately reduce the related treatment costs into adulthood.

Study finds children with autism respond well to puppets

This is a very interesting study done in conjunction with Jim Henson's daughter. Having seen many patients over the years, it would make sense that an "unemotional" face of a puppet would hold the attention of an ASD child as a way to more effectively communicate with them, since there is less stimuli for them to perceive and synthesize.
