This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
In compliance with the requirement of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 for opportunity for public comment on proposed data collection projects, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will publish periodic summaries of proposed projects. To request more information on the proposed projects or to obtain a copy of the data collection plans and instruments, call 404-639-5960 and send comments to Seleda Perryman, CDC Assistant Reports Clearance Officer, 1600 Clifton Road, MS-D74, Atlanta, GA 30333 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Written comments should be received within 60 days of this notice.
The National Centers for Autism and Developmental Disabilities Research and Epidemiology (CADDRE) Study—New—National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
The Children's Health Act of 2000 mandated CDC to establish autism surveillance and research programs to address the number, incidence, correlates, and causes of autism and related disabilities. Under the provisions of this act, CDC funded 5 CADDRE centers including the California Department of Health and Human Services, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. CDC National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities will participate as the 6th site. The multi-site, collaborative study will be an epidemiological investigation of possible causes for the autism spectrum disorders.
Study participants will be selected from children born in and residing in the following six areas: Atlanta metropolitan area, San Francisco Bay area, Denver metropolitan area, Baltimore metropolitan area, Philadelphia metropolitan area, and Central North Carolina. Children with autism spectrum disorders will be compared to children with other developmental problems, referred to as the neurodevelopmentally impaired group (NIC), as well as children who do not have developmental problems, referred to as the subcohort.
Data collection methods will consist of the following: (1) Medical record review of the child participant; (2) medical record review of the biological mother of the child participant; (3) a packet sent to the participants with self-administered questionnaires and a buccal swab kit; (4) a telephone interview focusing on pregnancy-related events and early life history (biological mother and/or primary caregiver interview); (5) a child development evaluation (more comprehensive for case participants than for the control group participants); (6) parent-child development interview (for case participants only) administered over the telephone or in-person; (7) a physical exam of the child participant; (8) biological sampling of the child participant (blood and hair); and (9) biological sampling of the biological parents of the child participant (blood only). There is no cost to respondents other than their time.
