Quantitative electroencephalographs (QEEG) may someday be able to measure the brain waves in people with autism and show how the brain waves improve in response to therapy.

This paper reviewed QEEG studies to see if this way of taking pictures of the brain could be used to measure a child’s progress in therapy. While people have tried to use QEEG to study the brains of people with autism, these studies have had problems because it has been hard to define autism. Some research has shown that the area of the brain called the temporal region is slower in people with autism.
