Your child can be monitored from infancy for biological and behavioral characteristics associated with autism.

The Infant Brain Imaging Study (IBIS) Network at UNC in looking for participants!

Currently, UNC is searching for 100 participants in the South Eastern US to meet the following criteria:

♦ Are between the ages of 0-12 months of age (parents who are expecting may also be eligible) at the time of enrollment

♦ Have an older sibling diagnosed with autism

University of North Carolina researchers are studying the brain development of children from 6 to 24 months of age. Developmental evaluations and MRI scans of your child’s brain will be completed at 6, 12 and 24 months of age. These services are provided at no charge to your family. Compensation for participation and the arrangement of your travel to Chapel Hill will be provided.

The data gathered in this study will provide important information regarding early brain development in autism, which may in turn provide clues that will eventually result in early interventions (e.g., early behavioral or medication treatments) to improve outcomes for children with autism.

To learn more about participating in this study, please contact the UNC IBIS Network site by email at ibisnetwork@gmail.com or by phone (800) 793-5715. Also, to learn more about this research project please visit www.ibis-network.org
