Autism subtyping of pre-school aged children

This project has the following objectives:

(a) To determine the clinical characteristics that predict outcomes in pre-school aged autistic children

(b) To evaluate the clinical, behavioural, family and psychosocial modifiers and predictors of outcomes

(c) To compare the developmental trajectory using clinical (phenotypes) and neurocognitive markers (endophenotypes) in relation to treatment outcome to determine homogeneous subgroups

(d) To incorporate the clinical, behavioural and neurocognitive profile together with the genetic/molecular signature available from project 1.2 to yield biological subtypes.
