Found (271) clinical trials

People with autism spectrum disorder are asked to participate in a research study being conducted by Montefiore Medical Center.

This is a Phase II multi-center, randomized, double-blind, 24-week, 3-arm, parallel group, placebo-controlled study to investigate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of RO5285119 in children and adolescents aged 5-17 years with ASD who are high functioning (intelligence quotient [IQ] greater than or equal to [>=] 70). Enrollment will be staggered, ...

Early Assessment of Autism Through Smart Tablet Gameplay

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has, historically, been described as primarily a socio-cognitive disorder. While it has been noted that individuals with ASD may exhibit movement abnormalities such as altered gait or increased clumsiness, recent evidence has suggested the possible presence of an underlying motor disruption, common to individuals with ASD. ...

Understanding the Effects of Intervention on the Brain in Autism

This study examines how the PEERS (Laugeson & Frankel, 2010; Laugeson, 2016) social-behavioral intervention affects social relationships, and brain development and function in adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum disorder.

Phase N/A

Comparing Behavioral Assessments Using Telehealth for Children With Autism

Managing challenging behavior in autism spectrum disorders (ASD) can profoundly improve quality of life for children and families. However, many families lack access to research-based treatment, such as applied behavior analysis (ABA). This study is a randomized trial comparing outcomes of treatment for ASD using either a standard Functional Analysis ...

Phase N/A

Parent Language Intervention for Autism

High dosage of early intervention is critical to language skill development in young children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and including parents is a cost-effective approach to maximize intervention dosage. However, parent-mediated interventions have inconsistent effects on parent and child outcomes. This variability is likely because parents do not have ...

Phase N/A

Using Mobile Technology to Reduce Stereotypy

Nearly all children with autism spectrum disorders engage in non-functional repetitive vocal and motor behaviours commonly referred to as stereotypy. These repetitive behaviours may considerably interfere with the child's daily functioning, learning, and social inclusion. As such, stereotypy generally has a negative impact on the child and family's health and ...

Phase N/A

Treatment of Disruptive Behaviors in Fragile X Syndrome

Disruptive behaviors such as self-injury, aggression, and property destruction pose significant health-related issues to children diagnosed with fragile X syndrome (FXS), impacting the child's quality of life and causing significant distress to families. Access to appropriate treatment for families is severely limited by factors such as cost of care, shortages ...

Phase N/A

Biobanking of Rett Syndrome and Related Disorders

At the present time, effective treatments for RTT, MECP2 Dup, or Rett-related disorders are lacking. Investigators have made substantial progress in RTT over the past eleven years such that this study represents a narrowing of focus to mutations or duplications of the MECP2 gene and related disorders, including those with ...

Phase N/A

Group Social ABCs: Early Intervention for Toddlers With Suspected ASD

The Social ABCs intervention was developed to meet the need for evidence-based, feasible, and sustainable interventions for toddlers with emerging ASD. Unlike other more comprehensive programs, the Social ABCs selectively targets only two key developmental areas (i.e., functional spoken language and positive affect). These domains were selected in order to ...
