Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI): 2019 Novel Outcome Measures in ASD

The objective of this funding opportunity is to develop and validate outcome measures that are 1) suitable for use in intervention studies, and 2) target the core symptoms of autism spectrum disorder.

Such measures should:
.  provide objective data with strong psychometric properties;
.  be scalable for use in large, multisite studies;
.  not be unduly burdensome to participants and families;
.  have evident clinical relevance;
.  ideally capture naturalistic rather than laboratory behavior; and
.  be applicable to subjects across a wide range of ages and levels of functioning.
