Description

Description

New guidelines put forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics suggest that all children should be screened for autism spectrum disorders (ASD) using a validated instrument at 18 and 24 months. There is now conclusive evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of intensive early intervention for infants and toddlers with ASD. This project will develop the Autism Spectrum Disorder Risk Alert (ASDRA), which will be a web-based, video-intensive software and toolset designed to assist pediatricians to more effectively and efficiently provide early surveillance of ASD in children 3 years of age and younger. ASDRA will improve the accuracy and speed up the process of early identification of children at-risk for ASD so that the appropriate interventions can begin as early as possible and the outcomes of children diagnosed with ASD can be improved.
