According to Newschaffer, the CADDRE sites will use a case cohort design in which the exposure patterns of the ASD cases are compared to a random sample of children living in the same geographic area.
CADDRE scientists will also characterize the behavior of the children, as well as describe any comorbid medical conditions and atypical physical features.
The CADDRE Network was established following the Children's Health Act of 2000 that directed CDC to establish regional centers of excellence for ASD and other developmental disabilities.
