Autism Spectrum Disorder Studies

KU has studies of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) which aim to characterize sensorimotor and cognitive functioning development in ASD. They interpret behavioral measures and measures of brain function and anatomy to examine the neural mechanisms involved in ASD. These studies are open to individuals ages 10 through 25 years old with a diagnosis of ASD, Asperger’s Syndrome, or PDD-NOS.

If you or your child is interested in participating in the ASD study, pleasecontact KU directly via phone (785-864-4461) or email (ndrlab@ku.edu).‚Äč
