Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Brain Development in Autism

The purpose of this study is to investigate brain development in autism by longitudinally assessing children with autism, as well as typically developing controls, using advanced MR techniques. We will use longitudinal diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) measures to investigate the protracted development of long-range white matter fibers in autism. In ...

AFQ056 for Language Learning in Children With FXS

The trial will use a double blind placebo-controlled parallel-group flexible-dose forced titration design in which 100 subjects with FXS, age 32 months to 6 years of age will enter a 12-month blinded treatment phase during which they are randomized 1:1 to AFQ056 or placebo followed by an 8-month (open label) ...


Translating Evidence-based Interventions for ASD: Multi-Level Implementation Strategy

Overview of Collaborative R01. The investigators propose to conduct two, coordinated studies testing the impact of the "Translating Evidence-based Interventions for ASD: A Multi-Level Implementation Strategy" (TEAMS). TEAMS focuses on improving implementation leadership, organizational climate (Teams Leadership Institute; TLI), and provider attitudes and engagement (TEAMS Individualized Provider Strategy for Training; ...

Phase N/A

Pivotal Response Treatment for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the application of an evidence-based, manualized treatment for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) (Pivotal Response Treatment, PRT) to children ages four through six years of age with ASD. Specifically, children will be randomly assigned to receive either (1) 10 hours per ...
