Project: A follow-up study on cognitive, behavioural and emotional functioning of school-aged children at increased risk of autism spectrum disorder
2019-10-01 – 2023-09-30
The current project addresses school-age outcomes of prospectively followed children at increased
risk of autism spectrum disorder. Besides stability and reliability of early diagnosis and IQ, multiinformant
measures of depression and anxiety, adaptive and challenging behaviour, self-perception,
peer relations, self-control and quality of life will be investigated. Furthermore, we’ll attempt to
detect early markers of school-age outcomes using infant data.
