Weill Cornell Autism Research Program

October, 2011

Weill Cornell Autism Research Program, Weill Cornell Medical College New York-Presbyterian Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children’s Health, is enrolling families with children older than 12 months of age with unknown types of intellectual disabilities or autism spectrum disorders in a new research project.  The purpose of the study is to improve the understanding behind the genetics and brain bases of autism spectrum disorders.  The one time study visit includes a detailed evaluation, behavioral assessments, completion of a questionnaire, and a blood draw.

Families can be seen at either the Weill Cornell New York City, NY site or the Hackensack, NJ site.  In exchange for participation, families will receive a $25 gift certificate, a $35 parking voucher and free admission to a future educational symposium.
