In “One Family, Four Children, Two Forms of Autism,” the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette features the Gallucci family of Burgettstown, Pa. With two of four sons affected by autism, the Galluccis participate in Autism Speaks Baby Siblings Research Consortium (BSRC).
This consortium brings together autism researchers from around the world with the mission of discovering the earliest predictors of autism. Their work is advancing both our understanding of how autism develops and the promise of earlier diagnosis and treatment.
