Early Biomarkers of Autism in Infants with TSC

[CURRENTLY CLOSED TO ENROLLMENT]

 

Our main goal in this study is to pinpoint early signs of autism in babies with TSC by looking at their brains through specialized imaging, EEG and developmental testing.

If you choose to have your baby be in the study, we will follow and test him/her between the ages of 3-9 months at regular visits up to 3 years of age. You (the parent or guardian) will be given the MRI and EEG results as well as summary scores from the developmental testing that is done. You will be with your child at all times. During the study, we will help in getting referrals for any child who shows early signs of autism.

Travel funding may be offered to participants who live out of state.
