The purpose of this research study is to evaluate Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) delivered via tele-health for young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and disruptive behavior problems. Participants will go through a screening to determine eligibility. Once screening is complete, participants will complete a pre-therapy assessment in clinic, followed by 10 telehealth sessions one time per week. Participants will then be asked to complete an in-person post-therapy assessment and follow-up questionnaires will be re-administered 3 months following the completion of therapy.
The current study investigates how available parenting interventions are for families of young children with ASD and how parenting practices influence participation with these interventions.
The current study will investigate the experiences of parents with children with ASD in disclosing diagnosis and their opinions on a brief intervention to aid families with this process.
The current study will investigate the experiences of adults with ASD in learning about diagnosis and their opinions on a brief intervention to aid families with this process.
No laboratory based diagnostic test for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) currently exists. The goal of this study is to develop blood test for ASD using metabolic profiling, and to then evaluate this test using a large sample of three to six year old children with and without ASD. Having a reliable blood test for ASD will allow for rapid identification of young children who may have ASD, and will allow these children to get expedited access to treatments.
Candidates for this study may or may not report disturbances in odor perception as their primary reason for seeking treatment at MUSC. This study is designed to collect long term, observational data from patients who are being treated with routine clinical care in health clinics at MUSC. Data from clinical questionnaires will be de-identified and stored in a database.
The TRANSFORM network is focused on improving child health outcomes in SC through research on conditions of highest priority for future generations. These include conditions like asthma, autism, diabetes, obesity and early childhood outcomes. To accelerate research study recruitment activities for future projects that TRANSFORM sites may participate in, the TRANSFORM network sites will create a research recruitment registry of families interested in volunteering for research. Participants will enter their own as well as their child(ren)'s information into the electronic registry which can be used to identify people to contact for future studies.
We are recruiting mothers of children with typical development, autism, or fragile X syndrome.
This study focuses on parental experiences and normal individual differences that may influence child language development. The broader goal of the study is to understand which family experiences support language development in children who have neurodevelopmental disabilities, such as autism. We are recruiting families who have children who are typically developing, have autism, or have fragile X syndrome.
