Social Brain Development in Infants

The Lurie Family Foundations MEG Imaging Lab at CHOP are looking for Healthy Infants and those with an Autism Spectrum disorder for a study on how the brain works. We are looking for both healthy male and female infants between the ages of 0 to 4 years old. We are looking for ASD male or female children 2 to 4 years old. Study procedures will be broken down into 1-4 study visits and will include neuropsychological testing and Magnetoencephalography (MEG) imaging exam.

We will provide you with reimbursement for your time and parking will be at no cost. For more information please contact our study coordinator Ayesha Anwar at 267-426-2571 or anwara@email.chop.edu. IRB 15-012129

Social Skills Video Game Study

Children between the ages of 5 and 16 are invited to participate in a study that seeks to improve eye contact in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  Children with ASD and those who are typically developing are eligible.  Participation in this study involves up to 5 study visits to the Center for Autism Research.  Participants will play video games while their heart rate, brain activity, and eye movement are measured.  Participants will be asked to give feedback about the video games, and parents will be asked to complete questionnaires about their children. IRB 15-012594    

Study Using Virtual Reality for Teens and Adults with Autism

The Center for Autism Research is looking for teens and adults ages 12 and older with autism spectrum disorder to participate in a research study testing the effectiveness of a new virtual reality (VR) application aimed at improving social skills. Participation in this study involves one to three visits to CAR to use the VR headset and complete questionnaires. Participants will be compensated for their time. IRB 17-014194

Linguistic Markers of Autism Spectrum Disorder

The goal of this study is to learn more about the ways autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is expressed in a large sample of individuals with and without ASD.  Children ages of 6-17, without ASD, are eligible to  participate.  Participation involves 1 study visit that lasts approximately 2-3 and involves behavioral and cognitive testing.  Parents will be asked to complete questionnaires about their children. Families will be compensated for their time. IRB 13-010514

Differences in Language in Autism

The goal of this study is to learn more about patterns of language in people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and people without ASD.  Children ages 6 to 17 with or without ASD are eligible to participate.  Participation involves providing language samples over the phone and completing questionnaires.  The study can be completed online and by phone; a visit to CHOP is not required.  The time commitment for the study is about 3.5 hours.  Families will be compensated for their time. IRB 15-011936

Infant Brain Imaging Study

This research study focuses on how the brain develops differently in infants with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) compared to typically developing children. The goal of the study is to identify very early brain features that may be characteristic of autism. This information may help improve methods of early detection and intervention for infants who may be at risk for this disorder.

We are seeking to enroll families who have infants 3 months old or younger and who have an older sibling who has autism or who is typically developing. Babies will come to CHOP at 3 and 24 months of age, as well as two other time points in between, to receive developmental evaluations and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. Parents will receive comprehensive evaluation reports at no cost and will be compensated for their family's time and travel. IRB 07-005689

VIP in Autism

Parents of Children with Autism Needed for an Online Survey

Parents of children ages 5 to 17 years with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are needed for a survey on screening tools. The goal of this study is to determine if certain screening tools about healthy children are equally effective for use in children with ASD. If so, these tools may be helpful in assessing symptoms or behaviors, as well as monitoring response to treatments and interventions. Parents or legal guardians of children or teens with ASD will be asked to complete an online survey about their child. In addition, the individual with ASD may also be asked to complete an optional shorter online survey. Families will be compensated for their time and effort. For more information and study details, please call 267-408-4918 or e-mail the study coordinator, Dr. Samantha Dunn, at dunnsr@email.chop.edu. IRB 17-014529

SPARK: Simons Foundation Powering Autism Research for Knowledge

The mission of SPARK is to ignite research at an unprecedented scale to improve lives by advancing our understanding of autism. To join this national autism research cohort, individuals with a professional diagnosis of autism and their biological family members will be asked to share information about their medical and family history, as well as provide a DNA sample. Please contact the Center for Autism Research for more information at 1-866-570-6524 or autism@email.chop.edu.

MEG Autism Study

The Lurie Family Foundations MEG Imaging Lab at CHOP are looking for Healthy Children and those with an Autism Spectrum disorder for a study on how the brain works. We are looking for both male and female children between the ages of 6-10 years old. We will provide you with reimbursement for your time and parking will be at no cost. For more information please contact our study coordinator Leah Gaetz at 267-426-4914 or gaetzl@email.chop.edu.

Brains Change

The Lurie Family Foundations MEG Imaging Lab at CHOP are looking for Healthy Children and children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) for a longitudinal study on how the brain works. We are looking for male and female children between the ages of 6-8 years. We will provide you with reimbursement for your time. Parking will be at no cost. For more information please contact our study coordinator Megan Airey at 267-425-1141 orAireyM@email.chop.edu.
