The Marcus Autism Center is conducting a study to learn more about what anxiety looks like in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This information will help to develop new measures of anxiety for children with ASD.
Goal of the study
This study aims to develop better measures of anxiety in children with ASD. Parents will provide information on their child’s behavior by filling out some forms and talking with a clinician. This information will be used to develop better methods of measuring anxiety in children with ASD.
What will my family be asked to do?
Parents and children will come to the Marcus Autism Center for three visits across four weeks. The first visit will last between 3-5 hours. The two remaining visits will last about 1 hour. During this time the parent will complete some forms and the child’s behavior will be assessed. Families will receive $100 compensation for their first visit and $50 for each following visit.
