Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders Invited to Participate in Novel Intervention Study!

Investigators: Dr. Anjana Bhat & Timothy Gifford; University of Connecticut; IRB Protocol #H09-113

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE? Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders between 5 and 12 years

WHAT WILL BE INVOLVED? A total of 36 sessions over 10 weeks (4 testing sessions, 16 training sessions with expert trainers & 18 home sessions). We will visit you at your home or school to deliver the play-based activities. Each training session lasts for about 30-45 minutes. You will have to fill out questionnaires on your child’s development. During the testing sessions we examine your child’s motor skills during various games that involve walking, drumming, balancing, and copying complex hand movements.  The visits will be videotaped so that we may score your child’s responses later. You will also need to provide a letter confirming your child’s diagnosis of ASDs and your child will receive additional assessments to test his/her IQ and severity of autism. Your child will receive $50 upon completion of all testing sessions and the majority of the training sessions.

If interested, please call us at 860-486-0019 or email at anjana.bhat@uconn.edu
