Study of Sensory Perception in Infant Siblings at Risk for ASD

Would you like to help us learn more about younger siblings of children with autism?

We need your help if:

  • You are the parent of a child between 8-18 months old
  • You also have an older child who either has autism or is typically developing
  • You’d like more information about your younger child’s development

Participating families come to the Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center for two assessment appointments, then one more follow-up visit nine months later. Families will be compensated for their time.

All younger siblings receive standardized developmental and language testing when they enter the study, a psychological assessment for autism at the follow-up visit and a formal written report of testing results, including recommendations and referrals, at no cost.
