Use of Pharmacogenetics in the Treatment of Children With Autistic Spectrum Disorders

Children with autism are often treated with psychiatric drugs. These medications have been shown to improve their language and social function, and are important in improving their quality of life. In many cases it is difficult to determine the best drug dose, and a favorable response occurs in only 30%-70% ...

Phase N/A

Phenotypic and Genetic Factors in Autism Spectrum Disorders

Participation in this research study involves two research visits, at least one of which is at Children's Hospital Boston. The first visit lasts about 4-6 hours. On this visit, the child will work with a research assistant on a few different cognitive assessments while one or both parents answer interview ...
