More and Less Social Comprehension

What's the study about?

The purpose of this study is to learn more about how children’s abilities impact their understanding of different types of stories.

Who can participate?

  • 9- to 12-year-olds who are autistic/children who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD), speak English, and can speak in phrases or sentences

Participants receive: 1. a small prize after each session 2. hourly compensation ($20/hr) for each visit completed ($40-$100) 3. an optional report

What will participants be doing?

The parent/guardian will fill out forms about their child’s development. Their child will listen to stories and complete assessments of their language, social communication, reading, and nonverbal cognition.

Why is this important?

This project sets the stage to develop clinical tools and a dynamic intervention approach that adjusts texts to meet child profiles of comprehension and instructional needs for individualized intervention.
