In prior work, we showed that some individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder early in life later lose the symptoms of ASD. Our current study looks at a group of such individuals who are now young adults; we are asking how they are doing, especially as they become more independent. We are also studying adolescents who were diagnosed by our team in early childhood, to identify early childhood predictors of long-term outcomes, and to look at how their brains process social and non-social information. More broadly, this study probes early developmental predictors of important long-term outcomes (including things like happiness and satisfaction) in individuals with a history of early language/social delays.
