In a collaborative effort with the The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Drexel University School of Public Health/Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, University of California Davis/MIND Institute, Kennedy Krieger Institute, and Northern California Kaiser Permanente, MSDE is assisting with the development of the Early Autism Risk Longitudinal Investigations (EARLI) Network. Early Autism Risk Longitudinal Investigations (EARLI) Network will establish and prospectively follow a cohort of mothers with children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at the start of a subsequent pregnancy. This enriched cohort will have the potential to serve as a study population for a variety of studies on the etiology and natural history of ASD’s.

The researchers at Johns Hopkins have collaborated with MSDE to recruit eligible women of reproductive age who already have a child with Autism.

The EARLI Network study will provide essential information that will support MSDE’s ongoing efforts to provide improved programs and services to better meet the needs of children with Autism and their families.
