I am seeking participants for a study on patterns of brain activity in relation to several behavioral tasks including spatial and attentional tasks. This study will be held in North Quad 069 and will take approximately 2 hours of your time. All qualified participants will receive monetary reimbursement for participating ($20 for two hours).
We are currently recruiting participants for a project entitled “Behavioral Assessment Program” focusing on challenging behavior (e.g., aggression, self-injury, tantrums) and children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The main purpose of this project is to improve and extend the current methods of determining the reasons why children with ASD display challenging behavior, and formulate teaching strategies for these behaviors that may be effective in real world contexts. These studies may be beneficial because there is the possibility that information may be gained that can help significant others (e.g., teachers, parents etc.) better manage challenging behavior, and also teach adaptive skills.
