1. What is the author’s goal? The author’s goal is to prove that Autism is a lifelong disability but if diagnosed early is very much treatable. With early diagnosis

and intervention during education will be vital to the future development of the child. Research indicates that with appropriate treatment, individuals with autism can

continue to make progress throughout their lives.

2. What questions remain unanswered? What if parents are in denial of the signs of Autism? If the child doesn’t attend school until school age 5 is it too late to

begin treatment?

3. If I had to design an experiment to test this hypothesis, what would I do? I would conduct a case study on students with Autism but diagnosed at different ages.

4. What are the independent, dependent, and control variables?  It would be an independent experiment. The dependent variable would be age verses education. And the

controlled variable the analysis of early childhood education verses beginning school at school age.

After reviewing each team member’s submission, answer the following questions as a team:

1.    What is your research question?

What are the social and academic benefits of having an early diagnosis in autistic children compared to the children who have a late diagnosis?

2.    What is your hypothesis?

We predict the developmental outcome of an autistic child, which is diagnosed early in life, will have a greater social and academic advantage in school compared to

the children who are diagnosed later on in life.
