Help make diagnosis more accessible

Help make diagnosis more accessible

Using a new, investigational blood test, you can help with clinical research to identify ASD at earlier ages, when interventions are most impactful.

We’re looking for both autistic and neurotypical children 3-12 years old to participate.

Why are we conducting this study?

It's our mission to make an early ASD diagnosis more accessible for all.

We believe our research could lead to a quick, inexpensive way to diagnose ASD at an early age - creating the opportunity for more effective lifestyle interventions.

In 2018, we began to develop strategies for identifying ASD with 40 participants. We’re now looking to test our research findings on a larger scale.

Research FAQs

What's the problem?
Autism spectrum disorder diagnosis can be vital for access to support, however, wait times for an assessment often stretch over 80 weeks [BC Autism Assessment network].
How can we help?
By participating in this research, you can help develop ways to identify ASD through a simple blood test, making diagnosis more accessible for all.
How can my child give a blood sample?
Blood collections are booked through our network of labs. Choose a nearby site and their staff will take care of the rest - most sites have additional measures available to ensure a smooth experience for children and, in select provinces, autistic patients. The blood test requires fasting beforehand, so most participants will want to book early morning appointments.
What if my child doesn't have a diagnosis?
Since this research is around identifying autism in children, there are some measures we have to take to ensure the results are valid. Therefore, we can only accept children who are autistic (diagnosed) or neurotypical.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept children who are autistic but do not yet have a diagnosis.
Is my child's health data and personal information secure?
Yes. Security and privacy of personally identifiable information and health data is our top priority. The Molecular You database holding all personal health information has advanced features for privacy, security and governance. Molecular You’s database security is aligned with PIPEDA, PIPA, and HIPAA (US) requirements and information is hosted in a secure data center. We will never share any of your personal health data with third parties.
