The participation of families enrolled in the Infant Sibling Study over the last 15 years has led to the publication of over 27 scientific papers (and counting!). Preliminary analysis of the Video Referenced Infant Rating System for Autism (VIRSA) looks promising in its aim to capture infant social behaviors, and we look forward to future publication of the results after testing of the VIRSA is complete.

In the meantime, please see below for a sample of the Infant Sibling Study publications that might be of most interest thus far. If you are interested in reading these articles, they may be accessed online by entering the PMCID number (text in bold below) in a Google search.
