The Seaver Autism Survey
The Seaver Autism Center at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine is collaborating with Columbia University as well as the Autism Science Foundation to better identify barriers to early diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders. "Early behavioral intervention is a critical part of treatment for autism spectrum disorders," said Dr. Joseph Buxbaum, Director of the Seaver Center. "Understanding causes for delayed diagnosis will help ensure that more children on the spectrum receive the earliest possible treatment."
The Seaver Autism Center invites you to participate in this research by completing a short survey. The survey is specifically for parents of children with ASD and focuses on timing issues, i.e., when parents, family members, and friends began to recognize that a child's development was not proceeding in a typical manner. The survey should take you about 10 minutes to complete.
