  • A Study to Evaluate Behavioral Intervention Designed to Increase Functional Independence During Aging in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Scottsdale/Phoenix, AZ

    The purpose of this study is to examine a pilot intervention that will target social communication, cognition, and mood regulation. This multi-faceted, behavioral intervention can be individualized to improve independence and QoL in adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) across the lifespan.

  • Evaluation of Cu, Zn and Se levels in the North American Autism Spectrum Disorder Population Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to confirm a correlation between metal ion dyshomeostasis (low Zn levels, abnormal Zn/Cu ratio, or low Selenium levels) in a North American population and the diagnosis of ASD using gold standard diagnostic instruments.

  • A Study to Examine Curriculum-based Group Recreation Intervention (CGRI) for Six to Eight Year Old Children with Autism Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to determine whether a group recreation intervention for six to eight year old children with autism, who have deficits in gross motor skills is feasible and acceptable. Additionally the study will explore whether a group recreation intervention can improve gross motor skills, social skills, physical activity, and reduce parent stress.

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder: Birth Cohort 1976-2000, Epidemiology and Adult Status Rochester, MN

    Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) are lifelong neurodevelopmental conditions with mostly unknown etiology that have a huge impact on affected individuals and their families, and are a major public health concern.  Significant gaps exist in the knowledge of ASD frequency and its possible rising trend.  Detailed characterization of ASD cases ASD subtypes is sparse, and potential risk factors (etiologies) are still unknown.  We will study certain risk factors like perinatal risk factors and family history (parents, siblings) of psychiatric disorders.  Knowledge about adult outcomes of ASD cases identified in childhood is almost non-existent.  ASD-associated medical costs are high, yet information to ...
