Summary

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) delivered via tele-health for young children with a developmental diagnosis (ex. suspected or diagnosed autism, ADHD, global developmental delay, etc.) 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, at no cost. 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. Families will be compensated for their time.

Education and Safety for Children with Autism to Prevent Elopement (ESCAPE) Kits Pilot Study

Date Added

Researcher
Silvia Pereira-Smith

List of Studies


Keywords
Autism
Summary

This study will evaluate elopement prevention kits for children with autism spectrum disorder who exhibit elopement behavior such as dashing or wandering away from safe settings. Caregivers will be asked to rate how useful individual kit items are at reducing elopement, and to provide feedback about how ESCAPE kits affect their stress levels and ability to engage meaningfully in community settings. This study will also investigate how useful kit items are for younger (4-7 years of age) vs older (8-11 years of age) children. Information will be used to guide development of a larger elopement prevention program.

Clinical and laboratory studies to determine the causes of neurological disease in adults and children

Date Added

List of Studies

Keywords

Summary

Neurological diseases are the leading cause of disability worldwide and a major contributor to health problems in children and adults. As the majority of these conditions result in lifelong disabilities, the implications for the family and for society is significant.

A significant number of adult and childhood neurological diseases have a genetic component and are caused by changes in our DNA and/or RNA leading to functional changes in the central nervous system. However, for many patients afflicted with these disorders, traditional genetic testing does not identify a clear genetic cause. The goal of this study will be to use newer genetic techniques to evaluate patients and families with neurological disorders to better understand the genetic basis of the disease.

Predicting the Emergence of Social Communication Across the First Three Years of Life

Date Added
November 9th, 2018
PRO Number
Pro00081992
Researcher
Jessica Bradshaw

List of Studies

Keywords
Autism, Children's Health, Infant, Language, Pregnancy
Summary

Early intervention for infants and toddlers with or at-risk for autism spectrum disorder can promote developmental skills and improve lifelong outcomes. Yet, many children with ASD are not diagnosed until after age 3. In order to improve early detection of ASD, we are investigating very early predictors of social communication challenges in infants as young as 1 week to 6 months of age.

This research study examines how the development of attention and motor skills in the first year of life is associated with the emergence of social and communication skills in three groups of infants: infants who are first born or who have a sibling with no developmental delays, infants who have an older sibling diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, and infants who were born preterm.
