The Yale Child Study Center is conducting a research study to examine if an investigational medication will help reduce the core symptoms of autism.

This is a 3-month research study where participants will either receive placebo (fake medicine) or investigational medication in the form of sprinkles to be placed on food. Participants must be 3 – 8 years old, be willing to undergo clinical and medical evaluations, and attend nine office visits at the Yale Child Study Center in New Haven, Connecticut. Collection of stool samples will also be required. Compensation for travel will be provided.
