Sally Ozonoff is the Director of the IDDRC’s Clinical Translational Core. Her research program focuses on the behavioral phenotype of very young children with or at risk for ASD and methods for earliest detection of ASD. Dr. Ozonoff is studying the onset of both ASD and ADHD in a prospective investigation that follows high-risk infants from birth through age 3. She is also studying risk factors, both biological and behavioral, for regressive patterns of onset. Another current project is focused on developing a video-based screening tool for identification of ASD in infancy.
