Cognitive Flexibility and Autism Genes Study
Criteria to qualify for the study:
Individuals with an ASD from ages 3 - 25
Which genes affect inflexible thinking and restricted interests in ASD?
What is the purpose of this study?
We are starting a new study that investigates the genes that may cause (or worsen) ASD symptoms, such as the need for sameness, difficulty with transitions, and odd interests. These symptoms look different across all children with ASD, and this study will identify a subgroup of children that are most affected by these symptoms. Identifying this subgroup at the genetic level will inform the development of new treatments.
Who can participate?
A child with an ASD between 3 and 25 years of age.
What does the study involve?
This study will include collecting saliva from your child with ASD. It may also include a visit to our center for collecting diagnostic information, parent questionnaires, or parent interviews.
Feedback on diagnostic information and parent report can be provided. Families will be financially compensated for their time.
