Making Advances Possible MAP Protocol
The mission of the Autism & Developmental Medicine Institute is to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and care of children with neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism spectrum disorders and other conditions. In order to achieve this goal, we must develop a deeper understanding of our patient population. The purpose of this project is to perform additional studies (such as behavioral, speech, neurological, and developmental assessments) outside the scope of standard clinical care on patients (and occasionally their family members, as needed) in order to better characterize their symptoms, the reason(s) for their symptoms, or both. This information will contribute to our knowledge base regarding neurodevelopmental disorders, and help us to better care for our patients now and in the future.
