Duke A+ study: An NIH Autism Center of Excellence research study for children with autism, ADHD, and typical development

*PLEASE NOTE: We are currently enrolling typically developing boys, 4-7 years old, who have not been diagnosed with ASD or ADHD.*

Is your child between 1-10 years of age? 

We are recruiting children who are currently experiencing attention problems and.or have difficulties with social interaction, as well as children with diagnosed autism or ADHD (or both conditions) and children with typical development. 

The Duke A+ Study is funded by the NIH. The study aims to improve screening, diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of children with autism and/or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or both. The Duke A+ study involves three different projects.  The A+ Health project focuses on early screening and diagnosis.  The A+ Development project explores social and language development.  The A+ Treatment project provides children diagnosed with both autism and ADHD behavioral intervention based on the Early Start Denver Model, at no cost.   All children receive a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation with a clinical report.  Families are compensated for their time. 

If you are interested in finding out more, please contact autismresearch@duke.edu to find out if your child can participate in one or more of these projects.  We look forward to hearing from you!
