Advanced detection of early cognition in small children

Author 2016 By F.Wright

The purpose of this project is to uncover possible simple advanced methods of determining the up come of autism at a very early age in life.

Historically parents have been in the position of detecting advance warning signals in their children as to future wrong development of mental handicap.

Chromosome 21, Dow Syndrome, is a typical example as to detection as from day 1 at birth. Other early warning signs, unspecified, have been reported by parents when observing their children as young as off three weeks in age.

Charles Darwin in the mid nineteenth century as a young father started noting the behavior of his newborn children as reference base observation as compared to primate newborns, Cambridge library diaries.

The purpose of the present paper is to expand upon an experiment tried out by Francis Wright after having brooded on the problem of early detection of possible autistic or mental handicap traits.

Early detection is primordial when dealing with these problems given that corrective actions which can be imagined prior to the ‘’pruning of neurons’’ when establishing the process of the neuronal ‘’High Ways’’ vital to all future reasoned social behavior.

Per chance it so happens that on the Thursday 31st of March 2016 I was sipping a coffee in a Geneva mega store staring around watching the by passing pedestrians.

His attention was caught when a young lady with her bay in the arms was passing before the store of a pet shop. On the porch of the store were several aquariums with small fish on display.

I suddenly realized here was a unique opportunity to try out a small experiment as to the reaction of the small child when confronted with a new situation.

Having approached mother and child I enquired if she would be interested in a small perfectly harmless experiment. Having received the consent, the child was placed very near, at child’s arm length, facing the aquarium with the swimming fish.

The mother gave her consent.

The child immediately reacted upon being placed in front of the aquarium.

Observation. Time span 1 minute. The age of the child 14 months. Not yet verbal

His right arm stretched out towards the glass pane.

His forefinger touched the glass and followed the swimming path of the nearest fish.

Finger and eyes darted when following the fish.

He extended a great smile, and started gurgling with pleasure.

Upon which he looked up at his mother with an expression of great contentment.

Of course I had to explain to the mother the purpose of my request.

Follow up:

As it so happens she herself is an ABA therapist having previously worked with children in the association for autism ‘’le Cube de Verre’’. As a professional she had never heard of this experiment previously. Her interest was genuine.

 On the second of April I told my audience at the La Baul conference the biological Approach to Autism of this experiment, and a medical doctor in the audience suggested that this could be of great interest to child care doctors as an instrument of early attention and or of lack of reaction.


Further experimentation should be carried out on a systematic basis with very young babies so as to establish a pattern of early interactive cognition with a novel surrounding space.
