The investigators will conduct a small-scale randomized control trial comparing the intervention game to an active control game, and will assess outcomes at multiple time points (pre-, post-, 6-month follow-up). These outcomes will include a wide range of behaviors that are measured along a continuum from controlled lab-based tasks to uncontrolled, real-world social interac...
This study investigates the brain response to a single acute dose of AZD7325, a GABA-A positive allosteric modulator, compared to a single dose of placebo in adults with and without autism spectrum disorder.
ECHO Autism was intended to assess rigorously the impact of a 12-session telemedicine training program on participating Primary Care Providers (PCP) knowledge, clinical behavior, and self-efficacy in the screening and care of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
