CliniKids is a not-for-profit centre integrating world-class research with a clinical service for children with developmental delay and/or an autism diagnosis, and their families. It is the first of its kind for autism in Australia.
One of the unique aspects of CliniKids is the integration of clinical services with cutting-edge research. Our exceptional team of researchers work in collaboration with our clinicians to give the community access to the world's best evidence-based therapies.
The CUB Study: Communicating and Understanding your Baby
The CUB Study is a program that uses video feedback to support parents of babies with a family history of autism (or ADHD or an intellectual disability) learn about the skills and capabilities of newborns, with the aim of enriching parent-baby interactions. Interactions between parents and babies are among the most influential experiences in a child's life.
This study is testing a world-first program that helps parents understand their baby's early social and communication abilities and empowers parents to interact with their baby in a way that supports their early development. Through this study, we are seeking to understand whether this new program improves the language and social development of babies.
