Autism Speaks pushes to help lower age of autism diagnosis to as early as 2 years old

Autism Speaks has kicked-off their new public awareness campaign for World Autism Month aimed at helping to lower the age of autism diagnosis to as early as two years old.

The advocacy organization for people with autism and their families says while the autism spectrum disorder can be reliably diagnosed by age two, the average age of diagnosis in the United States is between four and five years.

Angela Geiger, CEO of Autism Speaks, joined FOX 5 to talk about the push for early screening and intervention.
