ACCEL, Stanford University and the Microbiome Project have teamed up!
Check out a new online study that aims to understand the connection between bacteria in the gut and behaviors expressed by children with autism. If you have two or more children where one child has a medical diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and is between 2-7 years old, and another child without an autism diagnosis, who is no more than two years apart in age of the first child, than you qualify to participate! Please visit the study website to learn more and to participate.
