Core E: Participant Recruitment & Assessment Services (supplement)  

Core E provides services that promote the successful recruitment and initial assessment of research participants at the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center (VKC), a Eunice Kennedy Shriver Intellectual and Developmental Disability Research Center (EKS-IDDRC). Core E also provides VKC investigators with access to epidemiologically based study samples. Specifically, Core E has the following aims: 1) to provide VKC investigators with ready access to families and participants with different types of disabilities by going directly to communities of interest locally and statewide, by using web-based materials, and by leading a research participant registry focused on several disability groups; 2) to offer VKC investigators easy access to novel epidemiological and longitudinal samples via State of Tennessee linked administrative databases on demographic and health-related variables (e.g., birth, death, marriage, divorce, hospital discharge); 3) to provide consultation and training to VKC investigators in psychological, cognitive, and behavioral assessments; and 4) to contribute to the accurate diagnoses of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) for the growing number of VKC investigators who need access to this population. This is a supplement to a previously awarded grant with the same title. Project Status
