Hi, are there any proves for theory about relation between head size and autism. I have read something about this, but I am not convinced yet.

Hi, there are some publications indicating relation between brain overgrowth in first year of life and development of autism. Still, no evidence based link has been indicated yet. Specifically, autistic children have a smaller than average head size at birth, but then had a period of rapid head growth. This leads to conclusion that autism is mainly inherited and little can be done to prevent it. If your child has small head, keep in mind that only a very small percentage of children develop autism.
