As many of our READi Lab families know, our lab participates in a large international consortium of researchers who study the developmental course and outcomes of infants who are at risk for ASD by virtue of having an older sibling with ASD. Members of the Baby Siblings Research Consortium (BSRC) contribute deidentified behavioral assessment information to a database that now contains information from over 5,000 infants. This database has led to important discoveries related to the recurrence risk of autism in younger siblings, the stability of diagnosis, and the outcomes of infant siblings who do not develop ASD. The Autism Science Foundation has recently announced that they will provide $63,000 over the coming year to support the operation of the BSRC database so that we may continue our important work. Many thanks to the Autism Science Foundation for this funding. To read more, follow this link.
