Parents Needed for Study on Wandering

February 12, 2019

Researchers at Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York are conducting a new research study about using wearable electronic tracking devices (ETDs) for children with autism who wander. Parents who enroll in this study will receive an ETD to use for their child for free for six weeks.

Once per week, for six weeks, they will periodically be asked to fill out online questionnaires about their experiences with the ETD and their child’s wandering behavior.
