Children With Autism Suffer More Severe Symptoms When Born Either Preterm Or Post-term

For children with autism, being born several weeks early or several weeks late tends to increase the severity of their symptoms, according to new research out of Michigan State University. Additionally, autistic children who were born either preterm or post-term are more likely to self-injure themselves compared with autistic children born on time, revealed the study by Tammy Movsas of MSU's Department of Epidemiology.
Movsas added that for post-term babies, the longer exposure to hormones while a baby is in utero, the higher chance of placental malfunction and the increased rate of C-section and instrument-assisted births may play a role.

Les enfants autistes souffrent de symptômes plus graves lorsqu’ils naissent avant terme ou post-terme

Pour les enfants atteints d'autisme : naître plusieurs semaines en avance ou plusieurs semaines en retard augmente la sévérité de leurs symptômes, selon une nouvelle étude. En outre, les enfants autistes qui sont nés avant terme ou post-terme ont plus tendance à l’automutilation.
Movsas a ajouté que pour les bébés nés post-terme, l'exposition aux hormones augmente le dysfonctionnement placentaire ; de plus, le taux accru de césariennes peut jouer un rôle.
