ACE Network: Early Autism Risk Longitudinal Investigation (EARLI) network  

This study is part of an Autism Centers of Excellence (ACE) Network. The Early Autism Risk Longitudinal Investigation (EARLI) Network will establish and prospectively follow a cohort of mothers of children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) at the start of a subsequent pregnancy (with select preconception data collection). This enriched-risk cohort will have the potential to serve as a study population for a variety of observational studies on the etiology and natural history of ASDs. Project Status
