www.ProHealth.com • October 12, 2011


The University of California San Francisco has a Very Active Autism Clinic and Autism & Neurodevelopment Research Program (http://anp.ucsf.edu/aboutus)

This clinic/research center frequently begins new autism studies and clinical trials for which you or your child might be eligible – and invite those interested to complete a confidential Contact Form as a first step (complete it online, or print it out and complete, fax or mail). Your submitted form will allow the researchers to contact you with information about research studies.

One simple but potentially important trial (which is just awaiting final approval and will be actively recruiting children ages 3-8 soon, according to the coordinator), is:
