How can you help?

Everyone can help! We need people of all ages with autism spectrum disorders and people without autism to register to be contacted for current and future research.

Registering helps researchers find people to participate in research projects that help us find answers to questions about autism and how it affects families. Registering also helps you connect to research projects and news that may benefit your family and others.

Infant Research Opportunity at BYU

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.

Upcoming study:

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.
