Gastrointestinal Research in Children with Autism: Participants Needed

Posted by on November 8, 2013 in Event | 0 comments

Professor Emma Allen-Vercoe, at the University of Guelph, is researching the gastrointestinal (gut) symptoms that are often seen in children with autism. The researchers are looking for two sets of participants ages 1 to 8 years:

1. children who have been diagnosed with autism and have gut issues

2. children who are neurotypical, healthy and free of antibiotic exposure.

Participants should live within a reasonable driving distance of Guelph.

They want to reach as many parents as possible who might be interested in participating in this valuable project. They believe that the researchers will get results which will ultimately help autistic children.
