Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to create a subject database to recruit for current and future studies in research on autism and other neurodevelopmental disabilities.

Condition or disease
Autism Spectrum Disorder

Detailed Description:

Aim 1: to recruit people interested in research on autism and other neurodevelopmental disabilities

Aim 2: to complete a diagnostic assessment, to confirm the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder or other developmental disability (e.g., developmental language delay) in our patient population and rule out a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and other comorbid conditions in our control group

Aim 3: to maintain subject information in a database, from which we can recruit for our studies
