(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - New research could help guide treatments for very young children living with autism.

Researchers tested brain patterns of 2-year-olds with autism and found those with responses similar to children not on the autism spectrum progressed well over the next four years in terms of language development.

But toddlers who response was more scattered went on to struggle with communication.

Researchers say those children could benefit from extra treatment and earlier intervention.
