Sensory processing study needs children ages 10-13

Your child might be eligible to participate in a sensory processing study if he or she has a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder or is typically developing, is between ages 10 and 13 and has normal or corrected-to-normal vision and hearing (glasses or contacts are okay).

The research project looks at how the brain combines sights and sounds. The researchers hope to gain a better understanding of developmental differences in how information from the senses is used.

If you and your child decide to participate in this study, your child will be compensated for his/her time and effort.
