Autism Spectrum Disorder

The purpose of this research study is to test how well a common, standardized quality of life tool measures quality of life among children on the autism spectrum who are minimally verbal or have an intellectual disability.

The goal of this research study is to compare sex and gender development differences between children ages 4-8 years who are on the autism spectrum with children who are not on the autism spectrum.

We want to learn more about how the brains of children on the autism spectrum process sounds and language.

This study is being done to understand how the brain of autistic adolescents and adults process sound and language.  We hope the information gained from this study may lead to future therapies for language difficulties in autistic individuals.

The purpose of this study is to understand how children and adolescents respond to different emotions and social situations.

The goal of this research study is to learn more about how families manage mealtime and bedtime routines at home.
