"Identifying diagnostic signatures for autism spectrum disorder"
UC Davis MIND Institute
The CAMP study aims to develop a diagnostic tool for autism spectrum disorder that could be used in very young children. The earlier a child can be diagnosed, the faster they can receive helpful intervention. Currently, there is no accurate, biological, diagnostic test for autism. This study will compare two methods for diagnosing autism: 1) a laboratory test performed on a blood sample and 2) standard behavioral testing by a trained psychologist.
This study requires
1. One or two visits to the MIND Institute 2. Behavioral and Psychological assessments 3. A physical examination 4. A medical history review 5. A blood draw and a urine sample
Who can participate?
Children between the ages of 18-48 months who either:
1. Have a clinical diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) 2. Are showing signs of Developmental Delay or ASD 3. Are typically developing
Participants can receive up to $50 per visit for up to 3 visits
