There are currently 47 active clinical trials seeking participants for Autism research studies. The states with the highest number of trials for Autism participants are California, Florida, New York and Ohio.
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.

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

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

Testing a Mobile App to Improve Toothbrushing Skills and Habits in Teens With Autism
Recruiting
The goal of this proposed trial will modify an existing toothbrushing app for teens with autism and compare toothbrushing outcomes with a control app. We have 2 specific aims: During the 2-year UG3 phase, we will use the Discover, Design+Build, and Test Framework to modify our existing app and pilot the intervention. During the 4-year UH3 phase, we will recruit 270 pre-adolescents and teens with autism ages 10 to 17 years, randomize participants to one of two arms, and compare outcomes. Partic... Read More

Reciprocal Imitation Training and Musical Rhythm Sensitivity in Autistic Toddlers
Recruiting
The primary goal of this study is to examine rhythm sensitivity as a predictor of response to naturalistic developmental behavioral intervention (NDBIs) in autistic toddlers. Toddlers receive either Reciprocal Imitation Training (RIT), an evidence-based NDBI that supports children's imitation and social communication skills, or a music-enhanced version of RIT. Throughout their participation in the intervention, toddlers will complete study procedures of viewing naturalistic videos of infant-dire... Read More
