Principal Investigator:  Susan Swedo, MD

Brief Description: 

The purpose of this study is to learn more about the different types of autism. We are studying children with and without a history of regression (when skills are lost). We will look at several medical issues, such as immunologic problems. Children will be followed over the course of several years at 6 to 12 month intervals. We aim to capture medical problems that may be related to autism, and study outcomes over time in areas such as behavior and language.
