Children Needed for Autism Early Development Study!

Study Overview

Do you have a 3-30 month old AND a child with Autism?
 
Researchers at Purdue University are studying early development of younger siblings of children with autism spectrum disorder.

This study is looking for children, age 3 months to 30 months, who have an older sibling diagnosed with Autism spectrum disorder and who speak English as their primary language.

The study can be done entirely from your home and includes completing an online survey, a phone interview, a telehealth-based play session, and a daylong audio recording of your child’s vocalizations.
 
Our goal is to learn how researchers can better measure child development by empowering parents to take a more active role during the research session and make research accessible by eliminating the need to travel to a laboratory.  As such, our assessment activities involve parents working directly with their child in the comfort of their own home while the examiner provides coaching over the phone and through provided technology.
