In this study, Stanford University aims to understand the connection between bacteria in the gut and behaviors expressed by children with autism. They are looking for 100 families with two or more children, where: 1. One child has a medical diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and is between 2-7 years old, and 2. another child without an autism diagnosis, who is no more than two years apart in age of the first child. The study procedures include responding to an online behavioral and dietary survey, uploading a 3-minute home video, and collecting stool and saliva samples at home for each child.
