Do you want to SPARK a better understanding of autism? The Seattle Children’s Autism Center is looking for thousands of individuals with autism and their families to join the nation’s largest autism study. You can register online and provide a DNA sample from your own home and on your own schedule. Learn more about SPARK and register at www.SPARKforAutism.org/UW. For questions, contact the SCAC Research Team at 206-987-7917 or at SCACstudies@seattlechildrens.org.
The Bernier Lab at the University of Washington is recruiting adults ages 18-30 both with Autism Spectrum Disorder to participate in a study of how the brain processes sensory information. The study will involve up to 5 visits at the UW. Over the course of the visits, participants will complete neurocognitive assessments, a blood draw, and brain imaging (MRI) experiments. Additionally, we have expanded to recruit children ages 10-14! Participants will be paid $50 for the neurocognitive assessment visit and an additional $20/hour for the MRI experiment visits. If you are interested in learning more, please contact the Bernier Lab at 206-616-2889 or email@example.com.
The Autism Biomarkers Consortium for Clinical Trials (ABC-CT) is seeking families to participate in a study to improve diagnosis and treatment in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We are currently recruiting both typically developing children and children with a diagnosis of ASD between the ages of 6 and 11 years old. The aim of the consortium is to develop reliable and objective measurements of social function and communication in people with autism. If you are interested in learning more, please contact the Bernier Lab at 206-616-2889 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The TWINS study at the University of Washington is looking for families with identical twins ages 4 and up, of whom one or both twins have an Autism Spectrum Disorder, to participate in a research study exploring genetic differences that may play a role in ASD. Participation involves donating a small sample of blood and saliva and answering questions about interests, social skills, and development. Participation will take approximately 3 hours and can be done remotely. Each participating family will be compensated $100 for their time and participation. If you are interested in learning more, please contact the Bernier Lab at 206-616-2889 or email@example.com.
The University of Washington is looking for subjects to participate in a new study exploring how different genetic events impact behavior in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Participants between the ages of 8 and 17 years old with and without a diagnosis of ASD are eligible to participate. The study will involve 8 hours of testing at the University of Washington. Subjects will participate in a neurocognitive assessment, neurological exam, EEG, blood draw, and provide a detailed developmental history. Expenses related to the study visit (meals and lodging) will be covered by the study and subjects will be reimbursed $100 for their participation.
