UC Davis Health Clinical Studies

Translating Evidence-based Interventions for Autism: Multi-Level Implementation Strategy

Volunteer for research at UC Davis and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!

This study will be conducted in community clinics and schools in California. Study staff will be housed at three sites: 1. UC San Diego at the Child and Adolescent Services Research Center (CASRC) (coordinating site) 2. UC Davis 3. UCLA The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of the strategies to enhance provider training in two evidence-based interventions for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This study is being conducted to help improve services provided to families with a child with ASD. AIM HI (Individualized Mental Health Intervention") is a package of strategies for therapists to use with children with ASD . this study will examine the teaching meathods to implement AIM HI.

Join SPARK Today

SPARK, a new online research initiative, aims to advance our understanding of autism by transforming the research landscape. SPARK, a landmark research partnership, will connect researchers to a large group of individuals with autism and their biological families. SPARK is a free online study with a simple mission: to speed up research and advance the understanding of autism • SPARK aims to be the largest study of its kind with the goal of building a community of 50,000 individuals with autism and their families across the nation • The entire autism community is encouraged to participate, including adults and children diagnosed with autism, as well as their biological parents and siblings • By dramatically increasing the number of research participants, SPARK aims to help facilitate research that has not yet been possible An important part of SPARK is the collection of DNA so it can be analyzed to expand our understanding of the role of specific genes in the development of autism. SPARK will ask you to share basic information about your medical and family history, and if you choose, a DNA sample using a saliva collection kit.
