About The Study: In this diagnostic study of an autism screening test including 45,000 children, electronic health record (EHR)-based autism detection achieved clinically meaningful accuracy by age 30 days, improving by age 1. This automated approach could be integrated with caregiver surveys to improve the accuracy of early autism screening.
