Children with autism needed for study on sound processing

Researchers at Vanderbilt are studying how nonverbal or minimally verbal children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), 8-14 years old, process different kinds of sounds in their environment.

Children will listen to sounds while watching silent cartoons as they wear an EEG sensor cap to measure brain waves. Parents/caregivers will answer questionnaires. The study involves one or two sessions.

$50 compensation is offered for taking part.
