Gastrointestinal symptoms and anxiety levels in autism

Date added: 3rd February 2020. Deadline: Friday, 13th March

As autism shows symptoms of behavioural differences, anxiety has been found to be a common feature. Furthermore, gastrointestinal symptoms (e.g. abdominal pain and discomfort) might be present, which can affect their well-being and may also influence their behaviour. Therefore, the aim of the study is to investigate the nature of gastrointestinal symptoms and anxiety levels in children with autism. For more detail about the research read the participant information sheet or get in touch with the researcher.
