ACE Center: Linguistic and social responses to speech in infants at risk for autism  

This grant provides support for an NIH Autism Center of Excellence (ACE). The overall University of Washington ACE proposal is centered on a comprehensive developmental model of risk, risk processes, symptom emergence, and adaptation in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This project has two broad goals: in a study of infant siblings of children with autism, it will (1) determine the predictive validity of measures of early prelinguistic abilities as risk indices for language impairment and ASD, and (2) examine the influence of early intervention on the development of speech perception, speech preferences, and acquisition of speech in infants at risk for ASD.
