Although HC was similar in all infants enrolled in the study during the first few months of life, those who later developed Autism exhibited a marked accelerated rate of increase in HC beginning several months after birth. , 2003). This increase in HC was associated with greater cerebral and cerebellar volume in these children by 2 to 5 years of age. , 2001). , 2001). However, in adolescence and adulthood, brain size of those with Autism does not differ from that of nonautisitc individuals (Aylward, Minshew, Field, Sparks, & Singh, 2002).
