ACE Center: Assessment Core  

This grant provides support for an NIH Autism Center of Excellence (ACE). The overall purpose of the Yale ACE Assessment Core is to ensure that all projects that are part of the ACE have access to well-characterized patients, family members, and control populations, from both a behavioral/phenotypic standpoint and from a medical/pediatric and genetics standpoint. In addition to providing infrastructure support for recruitment, clinical care and assessment, this core also utilizes novel procedures to refine and extend the measures used to characterize subjects.
