Research to focus on teens with autism spectrum disorder
Adolescent outcomes will be a new focus of autism research under CDC funding to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Health. The funding comes under a new phase of the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network, the only collaborative network to monitor the number and characteristics of children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities in multiple communities throughout the U.S. Learn more about this research led by Li-Ching Lee.
