The general objective of the proposal is to improve the quality of life of children affected by ASD and CP by developing a better understanding of pre- and perinatal risk factors and their role in the prevalence trends of ASD and CP in Europe. The ENSACP project is a fundamental step in this effort and the strategic objectives are:
- To improve the information availability for pre- and perinatal risk factors and biomarkers for ASD and CP.
- To improve the accessibility of children affected by ASD and CP to appropriate treatment.
- To facilitate the preparation of analytical studies for a better understanding of the link between risk factors and children affected by ASD and CP.
