Interaction of Genetics and Stress on the Development of autism

The purpose of this study is to investigate the differences in DNA that are associated with stress and how they may contribute to the cause of ASD. This research is being done because at this time no one knows how autism develops. We think that genes and stress may work together in the development of some cases of ASD. We will be looking at how stress and other environmental factors, including diet, interact with one’s genetic makeup. This study will include surveys and a blood draw.
