Second Generation Survey Project

The siblings of individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are becoming parents themselves. It is not yet known what the risk for ASD is among their children, how to predict it, and who might benefit from intervening early.

To be eligible for this study, grandmothers (or expectant grandmothers) must have a biological child with ASD. Participation involves a phone call and brief mail-in surveys. Participants will be compensated for their time.
