Autism Speaks awards 16 new research grants funding more than $5 million over next 3 years
Date:4/8/2010

ng parent-training in a group rather than an individual format (Pivotal Response Group Treatment for Parents of Young Children with Autism, Antonio Hardan, M.D., Stanford University). A second clinical trial by Catherine Lord, Ph.D., University of Michigan Autism and Communication Disorders Center on Early Intervention in an Underserved Population addresses the question of access by underserved populations, including families of racial/ethnic minorities, lower education, or in rural geography, using a caregiver-implemented early intervention to examine the factors related to service utilization and satisfaction. Using a unique data resource, William McMahon, M.D., University of Utah will follow up a sample of over 200 adults with autism in 20-Year Outcome of Autism to understand their current symptoms, together with their needs, gaps and challenges in obtaining services. Finally, this project will also characterize the successes of adults with ASD.

"These types of studies are so important because unless we find a way to facilitate widespread, cost-effective means of bringing treatments and services to our families, we cannot successfully improve the lives of individuals with ASD, which is our mission. Without this last step, we will not have done our job," concluded Dr. Dawson.

Another area of Autism Speaks research funding are studies leading to an understanding of how environmental factors influence risk for autism, and the interaction between genetic susceptibility and exposure to specific environmental factors. A major environmental initiative announced in the past year includes funding of the IBIS and EARLI studies which involve longitudinal studies of over 2,000 babies from early after conception through early childhood. These studies of babies who represent families with more than one individual diagnosed wit
