Volunteers Needed for Behavioral Study of Children Who Have Siblings with ASD

July 19, 2021

The Institute for the Study of Child Development at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School is looking for children aged 4- to 24-months who have a sibling with ASD to take part in a research study of how children learn about the world through vision, hearing, and play with their mothers.

The study takes 45 minutes, during which the children watch some videos and also play with their mothers.

The goal of this research is to develop better diagnostic tests to earlier detect developmental delays.
