When One Twin Has Autism

Researchers at the UC Davis Mind Institute show stunning progress with Matthew Williams, a two-year-old boy who, unlike his twin sister, was recognized as being at risk for autism.

Using the Early Start Denver Model, therapists now have Matthew responding to his name, interacting with his family and playing at the same level as his sister, Morgan.

While there are still many questions about autism, this intervention has the families of some participants asking, “could there eventually be a cure?”

Watch Matthew’s story in “When One Twin Has Autism,” now on UCTV Prime. Then check out our library of autism videos featuring leading researchers from the MIND Institute and beyond.
