Breu explicació del projecte / Brief explanation of your project
The ASD and the ADHD affect the subject from the first stages of life, persist in their development and affect their quality of life while they produce a significant emotional, social and economic impact on their families.This is a prospective longitudinal study, called EPINED II, a continuation of EPINED research, which evaluates a representative sample of schoolchildren from all the regions of the province of Tarragona of two age groups (4-5 years and 10-11 years) that were detected as risk of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). EPINED-II project aims to investigate clinical, cognitive, biological, psychosocial and environmental predictors of the evolution of NDD by prospectively monitoring a sample of the school population (representative of the province of Tarragona) without risk of ASD or ADHD and at risk or with a diagnosis of these disorders in two evolutionary stages, which were extensively evaluated in the EPINED project. The results obtained will be useful in the elaboration of clinical protocols and in the development of preventive interventions that favor the well-being of society in general.
