Risk and protective factors in the development of associated symptoms in autism  

First, in a prospective longitudinal cohort study of children who are transitioning into adolescence, researchers will investigate the role of genetic, child phenotypic, and family risk and protective factors in development of associated symptoms. Second, in a younger longitudinal cohort, scientists will conduct a follow-up study of a randomized, controlled trial of early intensive behavioral intervention to examine the long term effects on both core and associated symptoms.
