Are you pregnant, or do you have a baby between the ages of 0 – 9 months who has an older brother or sister with autism?
The British Autism Study of Infant Siblings (BASIS) is a UK wide network of researchers. Our aim is to learn more about the early development of baby brothers and sisters of children with autism. We hope our studies will in the long term help to improve early detection and diagnosis of children with autism.
We are currently undertaking a project working with parents to maximise opportunities for social communication with their baby in infancy. We are very keen to work with families in the North West region.
This project will take place mostly at your home but families must be willing to travel to the Babylab in central London for some visits. Participation is voluntary and we always take your child’s needs into consideration during the visit. We will reimburse all your travel costs and special arrangements, e.g. hotel accommodation, will be available for the London visit.
If you are pregnant, or have a baby between the ages of 0 – 9 months who has a full sibling diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, please contact us for more details.
