The Children's Longitudinal Development Study (CHILD Study)
The Childrenís Longitudinal Development Study (CHILD Study) is an ongoing case-control study in which detailed information will be obtained on pre- and perinatal medical conditions and suspected risk factors for select disabilities among children identified through the Metropolitan Atlanta Developmental Disabilities Surveillance Program (MADDSP).
