Improving Access to Community-Based Occupations Via a Rideshare Training Program
Recruiting
Community mobility is critical for living independently and engaging in one's community. It is especially important for people in their early adult years, as this is often a time of transition to employment and living independently. Community mobility can be particularly challenging for adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) (henceforth referred to as autistic adults based on the preferred identity-first language of our autistic partners). Some autistic adults are unable to meet the demands... Read More

Effect of Parenting With Positive Interven on Comm Inclusion for Military Connected and Dependents With Autism
Recruiting
The purpose of this research study is to find out if a training program for parents with military dependent or connected children with autism (ASD) who have challenging behavior will help those children and their families participate in more community activities. The training program, called Parenting with Positive Behavior Interventions, may help military parents learn new tools that will help their children with autism and challenging behavior attend community activities more easily.

Studying Childhood-onset Behavioral, Psychiatric, and Developmental Disorders
Recruiting
Background: - Many psychiatric, behavioral, and developmental disorders are genetic. This means that they tend to run in families. Some begin in childhood, while others do not appear until adulthood. Researchers want to look at people of all ages who have these disorders that started in childhood. They will also look at relatives of people with these disorders. This information will allow doctors to learn more about childhood behavioral problems and how they are inherited. It may also help doct... Read More

Trial of Zolpidem for Sleep in Children With Autism
Recruiting
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of zolpidem on sleep in children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Zolpidem is a nonbenzodiazepine GABAa receptor agonist drug that acts as a hypnotic. To accomplish this, the investigators will use a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled crossover 8-week study design to examine the effect of zolpidem on sleep physiology as assessed by polysomnography (PSG), actigraphy, circadian rhythm, and clinical measures.

Trial of Suvorexant for Sleep in Children With Autism
Recruiting
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of suvorexant on sleep in children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Suvorexant is a selective, dual orexin receptor antagonist (DORA) used for the treatment of sleep onset difficulties and/or sleep maintenance. To accomplish this, the investigators will use a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled crossover 8-week study design to examine the effect of suvorexant on sleep physiology as assessed by polysomnography (PSG), ac...

Pilot Trial of Pregnenolone in Autism
Recruiting
This is a research study to examine the tolerability and effectiveness of pregnenolone in individuals with autism. Pregnenolone is a naturally occurring steroid hormone in the brain that has been implicated in treating various psychiatric conditions. The investigators hope to learn the effects and safety of using pregnenolone in reducing irritability and sensitivity to sensory differences and improving social communication in individuals with autism. The investigators hope by studying the effect... Read More

Near-infrared Spectroscopy and Electroencephalography to Assess Cortical Activation During Motor Tasks in Infants and Toddlers With and Without Cerebral Palsy
Recruiting
Background: New ways to study the brain as people move include near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and electroencephalography (EEG). NIRS uses laser light shone through the scalp to look at blood flow in the brain which increases with movement. EEG records electrical activity in the brain. Little is known about brain activity while children learn new motor skills. Researchers want to learn more about how small children with and without cerebral palsy use their brain to control their body. This ma... Read More

The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of diphenhydramine on sleep in children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Diphenhydramine is an anti-histaminergic agent with strong hypnotic properties. To accomplish this, the investigators will use a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled crossover 8-week study design to examine the effect of diphenhydramine on sleep physiology as assessed by polysomnography (PSG), actigraphy, circadian rhythm, and clinical measures.
