School Readiness in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Location: Westchester, NY or Manhattan, NY
Start Date: July 1st, 2018
End Date: February 1st, 2019

We are currently recruiting children who are entering or in kindergarten this year for a research study examining school readiness and academic functioning in young children with ASD, led by Drs. Sophy Kim and Cathy Lord. The participation in the research will involve a one day visit to either our office in Westchester or our Upper East Side location at the beginning and end of kindergarten. The children will be tested for early literacy and math skills and executive functioning. The visit will be about 2-3 hours with fun games and puzzles measuring your child’s cognitive abilities and school readiness as well as a short EEG session. You would receive up to 100 dollars per visit for participating.

Eligibility
Children must be entering or in kindergarten this September (AY: 2018-2019) with a prior diagnosis of ASD.
