New tests to detect autism in childrenBritish researchers believe they have developed the first blood and urine tests that can confirm autism spectrum disorders in children.

One in in 68 children have been identified with some form of ASD, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2014. The wide spectrum of behavioral problems include difficulty communicating and interacting with others, repetitive behaviors and limited interests or activities.

Doctors diagnose ASD in the first two years of life by looking at a child's behavior and development but haven't had a blood or urine test to confirm their diagnoses.
