As part of the autism studies, children will also complete behavioural assessments, including assessments of word understanding and word production.
We would be interested to hear from anyone with a child on the autism spectrum (or younger sibling of a child on the autism spectrum) under 16 years of age.
The following are example criteria for participation in the studies:
Diagnosis of Autistic Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorder not otherwise specified, or Aspergers Syndrome
Between two and six years of age
Child does not currently have a major intellectual delay
No major primary sensory impairment (for example: blindness, deafness)
