Autism Spectrum Study
Is Your Child on the Autism Spectrum?
Join us in a study that aims to determine whether children with autism spectrum disorders perceive and process audiovisual speech differently than their typically developing peers. We are seeking children ages 7-10 to participate in this study.
- •Participants will watch movies of speaking faces and complete standard
cognitive, language and social tasks.
•Testing can be completed in one to two visits
•Day, evening or weekend appointments are available
•Parent will receive a research report on childts language performance
•All testing is noninvasive and includes eye-tracking and EEG
•Children earn $10/hour for participation
•Participants are reimbursed for parking and travel expenses
Videos of speaking human and computer-animated faces paired with a non-invasive method to track eye movements will be used to determine how affected children use a speaker's face as part of their perceptual processing of speech. This study has important practical implications for the design of targeted interventiions for verbaland non-verbal children with ASD.
