“9-13 month-old infants who have a sibling with OR without Autism Spectrum Disorder and their mothers are needed for a longitudinal study examining how social development unfolds over time and how this development differs for those infants wither versus without an older sibling with ASD. Infants will participate in developmental assessments and play-based interactions with our researchers during four visits over their second year of life (1.5-2 hours each). Mothers will also be asked to complete several questionnaires, and older siblings with autism will participate in a hone0hour standardized diagnostic assessment for autism. $20-$30 compensation per visit, free parking, written feedback from the older sibling’s assessment will be provided (if applicable). In addition, infants will be closely monitored for signs of autism, and parents will be notified of clinical concerns related to autism and referred for appropriate services in the community. If interested please call (512) 471-5414 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment.
