Social play is important for children with autism spectrum disorders. We invite 7-14 year old boys and girls with autism or typical development to be part of our research about how children play together!

Participation involves 3-5 visits to Vanderbilt University:

  • Psychological Testing (1-2 hours), get $20
  • Social Interaction or play! (1 hour), get $20
  • ** Research MRI (2 hours), get gift cards for your child**
  • **Hormone administration with blood draws (2 hours)**

** We are not currently colllecting these data.

A great way to learn about science and help other kids!
