Turner Neurodevelopmental Clinic

To investigate and assess Neurodevelopment in children.

The Neurodevelopment Clinic is not currently accepting referrals.

During this interim we would like to invite you to take part in a range of studies currently operating to better understand neurodevelopment in children.

Project MAGNET

Monash Autism & ADHD Genetics and Neurodevelopment (MAGNET) project

We want to better understand the complex symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and why they overlap in some children. Kids with co-occurring ADHD-ASD symptoms have poorer outcomes socially, emotionally, behaviourally, and academically.

Working together we can better understand the issues faced by children with ASD and ADHD, to help improve diagnosis and treatment.

What's involved?

We are looking for 600 families across Victoria, Australia to take part. We are inviting families who have a child aged 4-12 with ASD and/or ADHD, as well as typically developing (control) children.

Eligible families will complete some online questionnaires about their child, give a saliva sample for genetic analysis, and complete some computerized assessments at our research facilities in Clayton.

For families unable to travel to Clayton, or who live in regional areas, it's OK to just complete the online questionnaires and saliva sample (these can be mailed to you).

We are asking for around 4 hours of your time.

How can I take part?

Please read the explanatory statement, then complete the brief online questionnaire to register your interest in participating. One of the team will then get in touch with you shortly.
