Do children with autism have a bigger shaped head?

autism
Norma M asked:


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?

What would be your advice about preventing autism? Does the age of the father matter?

autism
Alex asked:


If you have a child with autism would you recommend having additional children?
Other studies, than the one on the Israelis have shown that the biggest risk factor for autism is having it in the family and paternal age is only relevant when there is no family history of the spectrum.

What about prevention for the sake of the suffering that someone with autism must go through rather than what you might feel as the parent?

autism
David S asked:


I have Aspergers and have a very troubled life situation and I think an autism grant would help enormously. My workers don't know about government grants and cry scam at every app company site they look at. How do I go about applying. These grants are listedas for families with an autistic child, but what about an an individual adult with a form of autism (Aspergers in my case) applying for himself?

What would you like toIs autism a global issue, or is it only an issue in industrialized nations? ask?

autism
Moty asked:


I am just curious whether autism is a global issue, or just an issue in countries where children get immunizations. Are there studies? On the Today Show, doctors were claiming that autism just surfaces around the same time children are immunized. Wouldn't this be easy to prove by assessing the rates of autism in children of underdeveloped nations (who haven't been immunized)?
