Ongoing (approved) study:
Infant Research Opportunity at BYU
View flyer here
Do you have an infant between 5-12 months old? We would love to have them participate.
We are especially looking for infants who have siblings who have been diagnosed with ASD.
Study includes the infant looking at simple images to determine preference for old vs. new stimuli.
Families will be paid $10 for participation (about 30-40 minutes).
Look for the flyer under “Lundwall” on the Autism Connect website.
Research Opportunity for Girls and Women
We will soon be recruiting girls and women 14+ years old who find social interactions confusing, anxiety-provoking, and/or exhausting or who feel they may fit somewhere within the broader autism phenotype, whether they have been diagnosed or not.
We will administer an ADOS and other assessments and provide symptom scores (not an official diagnosis)
We will collect developmental histories with the objective of describing the experiences of growing up for these girls and women.
This study is not yet open, but you may contact us through the Autism Connect website or directly at Rebecca_Lundwall@byu.edu.
BYU has a groundbreaking interdisciplinary team of researchers working together to find answers to complex autism questions faster. We study questions from different angles and across the lifespan.
