Voice test for autism

This is interesting. Speech researchers claim to have invented a voice test for autism. From the article:
“This technology could help paediatricians screen children for ASD to determine if a referral to a specialist for a full diagnosis is required and get those children into earlier and more effective treatments,” ‘The Daily Telegraph’ quoted lead scientist Prof Steven Warren of Kansas University.
Very nice. I love to see speech research put to practical use.
