Center for Autism Research at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia announces: STUDY on AUTISM.
Our infant sibling study (IBIS) focuses on how the brain develops differently in infants with autism compared to typically developing children. The goal of the study is to identify very early brain features that may be characteristic of autism. This information may help improve methods of early detection and intervention for infants who may be at risk for an autism spectrum disorder. Earlier treatment may lead to better outcomes for these young children and their families.
We are seeking to enroll families who have a child with an autism spectrum disorder and an infant sibling 12 months old or younger. We are also enrolling families who have typically developing infants 6 months old or younger and who have a typically developing older sibling. Babies will come to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia at 6, 12, and 24 months of age to receive developmental evaluations and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. Parents will receive comprehensive evaluation reports at no cost and will be paid for their family’s time and travel.
