I've known several families online and in real life that have had their children with Autism undergo MRIs. I have always wondered for what purpose? Does it aide in diagnosis? Do some of the parents just ask to have their child undergo an MRI? Does having an MRI help in any way with the Autism diagnosis? Were they a part of a study of some kind? My mil keeps asking us why hasn't Aidan had an MRI done, and I honestly don't even know why others have them done and if they would be beneficial to him, well, in the case of studies and research then I can see the beneficial value.
