Question 1: Long-term Objective A  

$13,270,044.50
Fiscal Year: 2010

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, and evaluate whether these risk markers or profiles can improve early identification through heightened developmental monitoring and screening by 2014. IACC Recommended Budget: $33,300,000 over 5 years.
