Research Study Description

We are looking for children aged 2-5 (both autistic and neurotypical) to participate in a remote study about language learning in autism. Families who participate in the study can earn up to $163. We will send families videos of picture books being read aloud, and will ask families to watch the videos with their children. We will study how different types of picture books affect children’s ability to learn new words. We are hoping to learn more about why some autistic children have difficulty learning language and to test a method we think may help autistic children learn words more easily.

This study is being conducted by researchers at the Princeton Psychology of Language Lab. If you are interested, please fill out this form: https://tinyurl.com/princetonautism. You can also email [email protected] with any questions.
