Screening and Linkage to Services for Autism

Despite its relatively high rate of occurrence, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is under-diagnosed and under-treated in young children, particularly in minority and disadvantaged populations. Although screening for ASD in the primary care setting is recommended as best practice, inadequate attention has been paid to addressing important obstacles to early recognition ...

Phase N/A

Predicting Treatment Response to Memantine in Autism Using Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

Background and Rationale Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a behaviorally defined complex neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by early childhood onset of marked deficiencies in social and communication skills and presence of restrictive, repetitive behaviors. Its phenotypic heterogeneity makes studying ASD and its treatment a challenging task. Currently, only two FDA approved ...

Phase N/A

Word Learning in Children With Autism

Communication is an essential aspect of life for all individuals including children with autism. Many children with autism are severely impaired in their verbal communication development and there is a need for additional research demonstrating the effectiveness of interventions that improve communication for participants with autism and severe communication impairments. ...

Phase N/A

Microbiota Transfer Therapy for Adults With Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Who Have Gastrointestinal Disorders

For adults ages 18-60 years with ASD and gastrointestinal problems, the investigators propose a Phase 2 clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of MTT. The study will also determine if longer treatment is beneficial, and to conduct a longer observation after treatment stops to determine long-term safety and ...

This system emerges in infancy and develops over time to support more complex social abilities. It has ...

Phase N/A

Combination Treatment for Augmenting Language in Children With ASD

Following screening for eligibility and baseline, study visits will be scheduled three times per week, with 2 sessions on-site at UCLA and one at home for parent training (allowing flexibility, as needed); study physician visits will occur once weekly for 6 weeks, then biweekly. Screening procedures may be completed in ...

Road to Discovery for Combination Probiotic BB-12 With LGG in Treating Autism Spectrum Disorder

This study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of combination probiotic BB-12 with LGG in healthy children with autism spectrum disorder aged 4-15 years. Subjects will be randomized to BB-12 with LGG orally (LGG dose: 10^9 c.f.u.'s; BB-12: 10^9) for a total of 56 doses or placebo (maltodextrin) at 2:1 ...

Effectiveness of a Developmental Reciprocity Treatment Program in Autism

This is a research study examining the effectiveness of a Developmental Reciprocity Treatment Program (DRT-P) in treating social deficits in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Developmental Reciprocity Treatment is an early intervention that applies developmentally-informed teaching methods in naturalistic settings in order to target social and communication deficits. Researchers ...

Phase N/A

Emotion Awareness and Skills Enhancement Program

The current study is to test a new intervention called Emotional Awareness and Skills Enhancement (EASE). This program was designed to address ASD-specific obstacles to effective emotion regulation, such as reduced awareness concerning others' intentions, a limited repertoire of behavioral responses, and inadequate language for understanding emotional experiences. This new ...
