ASU’s Autism / Aspergers Research Program — Study of Infant Siblings of Children with ASD

ASU Autism /Asperger's Research Program
 
Dear Autism Community,
 
A huge national study now has openings for infants (0-6 months old) who are siblings of children with ASD. The study involves following these high-risk infants for several years to learn about causes of autism, how to prevent it, and how to treat it. Please see the attached flyer for details, or go to https://www.gemma-project.eu
 
If a family has a child with autism, there is an 18% chance that future children will also develop ASD, so it is important to monitor them closely. Enrolling in this study will help evaluate their development, and there is an optional treatment to consider if they are diagnosed with autism.
 
Thanks for your consideration, and please forward to any autism groups you belong to.
 
Sincerely,
James B. Adams, PhD
Arizona State University
member of the scientific advisory board for this study (GEMMA)
