Preliminary efficacy of a new treatment protocol aimed at improving social attention in infants at risk for ASD

This prospective ACE study aims to test a novel brief intervention for improving attention to faces in toddlers with elevated likelihood for ASD. The intervention intends to help toddlers attend to interactive partners in their natural environment. Information collected through this study will be used to develop novel methods of supporting social attention for infants with elevated likelihood for ASD.

Younger siblings of children with ASD will participate in a 2-day attention training program at 18 months.

The study is conducted at the SANA Lab at 300 George St., Suite 900, New Haven, CT.

As token of our appreciation, families receive financial compensation for study participation.
