Do children with autism have a bigger shaped head?
I am researching autism in children under 3 right now. My friend and I have been discussing my son. We believe, my son is showing signs of autism. My friend said he has autistic children in his family and those children have big heads. Like rounder in the back of the head.
Does anyone know if this is typical in autism?
It’s typical of autism.
In fact, all children who suffer severe stress in early infancy–premature birth, caesarean birth, surgery or severe illness shortly after birth, etc– experience rapid neuronal overgrowth.
The big exception is a supposed form of autism called “Rett Syndrome” where one of the symptoms is microcephaly.
