Autism Research

Problem

Children ages 3 through 5 who are developmentally disabled

Solution

A four year research study of Autism involving children ages 3 through 5. During the course of this study, dysmorphology examinations will be conducted (including anthropometric measurements, face/head digital photographs, skin examination); adult and child blood draws, and the collection of the child’s hair samples. These collections and samplings will be compared against children without this disability with the data being processed in preparation for clinical geneticists review.
