Calls to Action

Got Questions?

Relationship Development Intervention

When my granddaughter was diagnosed with autism at age 5, she ignored other people. After Relationship Development Intervention (RDI), she’s a different person – seeking interaction and initiating conversation. Why don’t we hear more about this intervention? 

Cord Blood Banking

Should we bank our new baby’s umbilical cord blood as a possible treatment for autism? Our first child was recently diagnosed with ASD.

This week’s “Got Questions?” answer comes from Alycia Halladay, PhD, Autism Speaks senior director of environmental and clinical sciences, and Daniel Smith, PhD, Autism Speaks senior director of discovery neuroscience.
