UNC looks at differences between boys and girls

Location: Chapel Hill, NC - UNC at Chapel Hill
Start Date: July 14th, 2017
End Date: December 17th, 2017

Our team at UNC Chapel Hill are using eye tracking as a way to look at differences between girls and boys with and without a diagnosis of autism.

We are currently recruiting 6-10 year olds to participate in a study to explore what attracts the attention of children with and without autism.

The study will take place at our research clinic in Carrboro. The eye tracker is built into our computer and tracks where children look on the screen. They will view a series of videos and images designed to detect differences in attention. Children will also complete a short developmental assessment and caregivers will complete some surveys about their child.

The study visit takes between 90 minutes to 2 hours. Families are reimbursed with an Amazon Giftcard ($25 for children without ASD; $55 for children with ASD).

If you are interested in hearing more about the study, please contact clare_harrop@med.unc.edu or 919-966-9796.
