“This finding highlights the importance of close surveillance of these two domains independently over time,” Peter Szatmari, MD, of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health at The Hospital for Sick Children at the University of Toronto, and of the Pathways in ASD Study Team, and colleagues wrote.
