Is your child between 1-7 years of age?
We are recruiting children with autism, ADHD, and typical development. The Duke A+ Study is funded by the National Institutes of Health Autism Center of Excellence Program. The study aims to improve screening, diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of children with autism and/or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The Duke A+ study involves three different projects. The A+ Health project focuses on early screening and diagnosis. The A+ Development project explores social, language, and brain development. The A+ Treatment project is a treatment study offering early behavioral intervention based on the Early Start Denver Model. Some children in the treatment project will also be receiving a medication to help ADHD symptoms.
