We are posting this invitation on behalf of Irish Centre for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Research (ICAN). You can have a look at their web site here http://www.nuigalway.ie/ican/index.html
Some children with autism have behaviour problems. Other children have Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) or display some AD/HD symptoms, while some children do not have these symptoms. The Irish Centre for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Research (ICAN) are interested in investigating behaviour problems and AD/HD symptoms in children with autism. We are also interested in investigating whether there is a link between behaviour problems and gastrointestinal symptoms. We would like to hear from parents of children with autism who are aged 6 to 17 years. Even if your child doesn’t have these symptoms, we can still learn a lot from your information on why some children have behaviour problems and why others do not.
