Abstract: 

Autism researchers and advocates are concerned about changes to the recruitment strategy of the National Children’s Study, which aims to enroll 100,000 pregnant women, monitor environmental exposures, and examine gene-environment interactions in the women and their children. The changes, which include forgoing door-to-door recruitment, may limit the generalizability of the findings.
