Children with autism 8-14 years of age needed for study on sound processing

Researchers at Vanderbilt are studying how nonverbal or minimally verbal children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) process different kinds of sounds in their environment.

Children will listen to sounds while watching silent cartoons as they wear an EEG sensor cap to measure brain waves. Parents/caregivers will answer questionnaires. The study involves only one or two sessions.

$50 compensation is offered for taking part.
