Communication and Music Perception in Autism (CAMP) Study
The Communication and Music Perception in Autism (CAMP) study explores how high-functioning individuals with Autism understand verbal and non-verbal communication and also how they experience and perceive music. We will soon be enrolling high-functioning individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and also typically developing adolescents. The goal of the study is to help figure out how individuals with Autism process social and communicative information and whether there are ways to improve communication in typical social situations.
Who is Eligible to Participate?
Adolescents between 13 and 17 years old with a diagnosis of an Autism spectrum disorder or with typical development without hearing or vision impairments.
How Does the Study Work?
The study involves two testing sessions:

Your child will watch videos of people describing pictures, play computer games, listen to musical notes and wear an eye-tracker. Participants will be reimbursed for their time.
