Summary

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 five 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.
