Adults with autism struggle to find medical professionals who understand their needs. And the demand will continue to grow. That’s why some in the Central Ohio health care community direct their expertise to helping autistic adults.
Ohio State Develops Alzheimer’s Self-test
Ohio State’s Dr. Douglas Scharre has developed a simple handwritten test that can catch the early signs of Alzheimer’s Disease or other memory-related illnesses. This test, which can be taken from the comfort of the patient’s own home, can help diagnose and treat the disease up to 3 or 4 years earlier than the average.
Doctors can even use the test to check the effects of new medication on the thought processes of a patient.
