Studies for Children with Autism

Our researchers are interested in having families of children with Autism visit our lab or participate in our online studies. Check out our current online studies below! Please click on a study to learn more or sign up.


Infant-Caregiver Interactions

Age Range: 3-12 months

This study is observing infants’ behaviors when interacting with their caregivers. Particularly, we are interested in how infants at risk for developing Autism Spectrum disorder (ASD), interact and socialize in early stages of development. If you participate in this study, you will be invited to a recorded Zoom session where you and your baby will play with toys in the comfort of your own home! You will receive a $10 Amazon gift card for participating!


Causal Reasoning in Children

Age Range: 3-5 years

In this study, we are investigating how kids with and without Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) come to understand cause and effect relationships. We use novel toys and activities to help us learn about how children interpret and infer cause and effect and how this understanding relates and provides insight into their cognition in general. Your child will play a series of 5-6 games and will be asked a few questions about each one.
