Novel Interventions for Neurodevelopmental Disorders (R34)

Submission Date: June 17, 2008

Award Ceiling: $220,000

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits R34 grant applications that propose to develop novel interventions that will improve functioning in domains commonly affected by neurodevelopmental disorders. It provides resources for evaluating the feasibility, tolerability, acceptability and safety of novel approaches, and for obtaining the preliminary data needed to support the development of a larger-scale efficacy trial. This FOA is intended to encourage a broad scope of new treatment approaches with potential for widespread, cost-effective application across a variety of neurodevelopmental disorders based on the targeted domain(s) of functioning. The treatment approaches may include psychopharmacologic, other physiological, cognitive, psychosocial, psychoeducational, and behavioral approaches or novel combinations of any of these approaches. Also of interest are particularly innovative and theoretically-based intervention approaches currently in clinical use that have not been adequately evaluated for safety and efficacy
