This research study investigates how individuals with typical development and autism spectrum disorders (ASD) process sensory information. We are hopeful that this research will help to promote a more thorough understanding of the possible (multi)sensory differences found in individuals with ASD.
The study requires one session between 1.5 to 3 hours long. The parent or caregiver will be asked to answer some questions and complete some questionnaires. The child participant will complete study tasks on a computer that involve responding to what they see and hear, and also answer some questions.
Children 6 to 18 with or without an autism spectrum disorder who
are likely to be comfortable working on a computer for 2 hours
can verbally respond to a task
have normal or corrected to normal vision and hearing
