Question 1: Long-term Objective A  

$16,465,034.00
Fiscal Year: 2009

Green dot: Objective has greater than or equal to the recommended funding.1LA. Identify behavioral and biological markers that separately, or in combination, accurately identify, before age 2, one or more subtypes of children at risk for developing ASD by 2014.
