Autism Speaks Autism Treatment Network (ATN) has competed successfully for another round of federal funding—$12 million—to continue to serve as the Autism Intervention Research Network on Physical Health (AIR-P).
The symptoms of attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) create significant problems for over half of all children with autism and may be both under-recognized and under-treated by pediatricians.
Many opportunities are available for families to participate in autism research. You can join a clinical trial, enroll in a research study, contribute to our rich genetic database or participate online by adding your family information to a research database. Nearly 90 percent of children with cancer are enrolled in clinical trials--contrasted with only 5 percent of children with autism. Your participation can make a difference in the lives of all who struggle with autism.
