Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator: SOM: MED: Department of Public Health-Sacramento Campus
Department Description In 2003, the CHARGE (Childhood Autism Risks from Genetics and Environment) Study began enrolling three groups of children aged 2-5 years: with autism spectrum disorder (ASD); with other (not ASD) developmental delays (DD); and from the general population with typical development (TD). CHARGE has generated a body of new results on pre-natal exposures, such as pesticides, air pollution, medications and maternal nutrition, in relation to ASD and DD. For the ECHO/ReCHARGE program, CHARGE children from all three diagnostic groups will be followed up at ages 8-12 or, for those now older, ages 15-19, to understand developmental trajectories for each of these three groups (baseline DD, ASD, or TD at baseline). Outcomes of interest will be longitudinal change in diagnoses, cognitive and adaptive function, and symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety or depression.
