UW Autism Center Spotlights:
Siblings of children with ASD may have needs that differ from children with typically developing siblings. In addition, parents of children with ASD often have questions related to younger siblings. A recent document developed by the Autism Speaks Baby Siblings Research Consortium has been developed to answer the following questions; 1) If I have a child with ASD, how likely is it that my next child will have ASD or a related developmental challenges? 2) What are the earliest signs of ASD and when do they appear? 3) What can parents do if they are concerned about their child's development? Answers to these questions can be found by clicking this link. The Autism Speaks Baby Siblings Research Consortium aims to improve the lives of individuals affected by ASD by making discoveries that will help researchers develop new ways to treat or even prevent symptoms by intervening at an early age. Several UW Autism Center researchers are members of the Consortium.
