Applications to the Fiscal Year 2017 (FY17) Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury Research Program (PH/TBIRP) in the area of Applied Behavior Analysis for Autism are being solicited.
The Program Announcement can be read here: https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=297992.
The intent of the FY17 PH/TBIRP Applied Behavior Analysis Clinical Study (ABACS) Award is to support a prospective clinical study that will evaluate the effectiveness of the tiered delivery model of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It is envisioned that findings from the ABACS Award will lead to a thorough and detailed understanding of the outcomes of ABA services delivered to participants diagnosed with ASD who receive tiered model ABA services under the study. Importantly, it is anticipated that findings from the study will determine whether those receiving ABA services demonstrate improvements in cognitive and adaptive functioning.
Pre-applications must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. ET December 20, 2017 and applications are due by 11:59 p.m. ET, January 8, 2018.
