Clinical Assessment Protocol of the Autism Birth Cohort (ABC)


The ABC study is a subproject in Mother and child study. The cohort is comprised of approximately 75 000 children followed from week 17 of gestation. Questionnaires are completed by mothers during pregnancy, and at child age 6, 18 and 36 months. In spring 2007 the oldest children in this cohort will turn 7 years old and a new questionnaire will be completed in the cohort. At 36 months the total cohort is screened for possible ASD using several strategies. Based on the questionnaire, children scoring above cut-offs on the Social Communication Questionnaire (SCQ), or report of certain referral or treatment histories are invited for a full clinical assessment at Nic Waals Institute at Lovisenberg Hospital. A same aged randomly drawn control group is invited for a full assessment as well. Children whose parents indicate in the 36 months questionnaire that their child has autism, and self-referrals meeting criteria are also invited. The minimum expected number of children with ASD and who will be ascertained through a clinical examination, is approximately 150 cases. The clinical examination includes structured and semi-structured assessments with the PAPA (Preschool Age Psychiatric Assessment), ADI-R (Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised), ADOS (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule), Vineland, Mullen scales and Stanford-Binet IV tests.
