Early Autism Risk Longitudinal Investigation (EARLI) Study

Address :

The Early Autism Risk Longitudinal Investigation (EARLI) Study, based at Drexel University in Philadelphia, seeks families to help researchers find clues about the causes of autism. The EARLI Study is a national research study of biological and environmental risk factors for having another child with autism in families already affected by the disorder.

Benefits to Families:
Families enrolled in the EARLI Study will:

-Be compensated for time and travel to our Philadelphia-based site,
-Receive comprehensive developmental and autism assessments beginning at 6 months and continuing until 3 years of age, and small gifts for the new baby.

You may be eligible to participate if:
§ You are the biological mother of a child with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis,
§ You may become pregnant or are currently less than 28 weeks pregnant, and
§ You live in within 2 hours of Philadelphia
