Does your child like to play computer games?

Principal Investigator: Mark Wallace, Ph.D.

Description

Overview

This research study investigates how children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) as well as typically developing children process sensory information. We are hopeful that this research will help to promote a more thorough understanding of the possible single and multi-sensory differences found in individuals with ASD.

Study Details

The study takes 3-5 visits spread out over a one-month period of time. These days do not have to be consecutive.

The parent or caregiver will be asked to answer some questions and complete some questionnaires.

The child participants will take some language and literacy assessments, and complete computer tasks that involve responding to what they see and hear. You will receive a written report of the assessment results and be compensated for your time.

Compensation

  • $10 per hour of study completed;
  • You will receive a written report of the assessment results and be compensated for your time.
  • Compensation comes in the form of a gift card.
