Information About the Visit

The IBIS Network recently received a $9.5 million grant from NIH to replicate our previous study of brain and behavior development in infants at risk for developing autism. The goal of our new study is to identify the symptoms of autism at an earlier age. We will be recruiting 250 infants across all IBIS Network locations 6-months of age and younger from families we have not previously seen. All infants we see will have at least one full older, full sibling diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
  • Visits occur when infants are 6 months, 12 months and 24 months of age
  • Travel arranged by study sites - no cost to participate
  • MRI completed when infants are naturally sleeping - no sedation or radiation
  • Families receive behavioral assessment report after each visit
