The nasal spray is being studied in combination with an established social learning intervention, called the Parent-delivered Early Start Denver Model (P-ESDM).
Children and their parents attend a 12-week therapy program with a therapist, where they will learn how to use P-ESDM with their child at home. To participate, they must be able to attend five study visits and 13 P-ESDM sessions at the Brain and Mind Centre over the course of six months.
To be eligible, participants must:
Be aged 3–5 years
Have an autism diagnosis
Not have any other severe genetic, physical or neurological conditions
Potential benefits to participating in this study include:
Participating in P-ESDM and learning new skills to use with your child
Receiving verbal feedback on your child’s study assessments
