Research Study

GEMMA (Genome, Environment, Microbiome and Metabolome in Autism)

Please read below information regarding research that you may wish to participate in;

GEMMA is an international EU project which is investigating gastrointestinal problems like constipation, diarrhoea, or tummy pains that are experienced by up to 80% of children with autism.

They are looking for families who have an autistic child and a baby sibling who is 0-6 months of age to take part in the GEMMA study.  They are administering autism assessments to participants when they are aged 1-3 years every six months. If your child has autism, you will receive this information as early as possible, which will allow you to access support services.

If you, or a family you know, have a child with autism and a baby aged 0-6 months, or you are pregnant, and you would like to learn more about participating, please go to and For Families | ICAN (
