A group of Canadian researchers have strictly warned the parents stating that routine screening could actually increase the probabilities of autism occurrences in children. They fear that the screening tests aren’t certified by the Health Authorities. Moreover, they haven’t been able to detect its efficacy. In fact researchers from the McMaster University are not too convinced with such screening methods and have ordered doctors not to practice such regular tests on autistic children. They are completely against incorporation of screening practices at doctor’s chambers.
