This project will be looking at familial factors of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), ADHD and anxiety. There are three aims for this project.
Aim 1: To test whether dyadic measures of parent child interaction in infancy and toddlerhood predict individual differences in dimensional traits of ASD in mid-childhood more strongly than proximal individual child and parent measures derived from the same capture of dyadic interaction.
Aim 2: To test whether parental and proband traits of ASD, anxiety and ADHD predict individual differences in dimensional traits of ASD, anxiety and ADHD in mid-childhood.
Aim 3: To combine familial factors into a comprehensive family model.
