Does Your Child Suffer from Autism?
It is estimated that approximately 1 in 88 children in the United States suffer from an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Autism, Asperger’s Disorder and Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) are three common ASDs. Some symptoms of these conditions may include impaired social interactions, dysfunction in verbal and nonverbal communication or limited interest in activities or play.
Deaconess Clinic physicians are participating in a global clinical research study evaluating the safety, tolerability, and effectiveness of an investigational drug on social interaction and communication skills in children age 6 to 12 with Autism, Asperger’s Disorder, or PDD-NOS. Qualified participants will receive study related office visits and study drug at no cost.
