Project description

The goal of the proposed research project is to extend the current knowledge on developmental pathways, predictors and prognosis of developmental regression in young children with ASD. Both traditional and more recent theoretical insights will be explored by means of different methodological designs. More insight into the phenomenon of regression in ASD has both different theoretical and clinical implications.
