Be a part of Autism and Asperger’s research!

Help us discover the unique ways in which people with Autism process language!
We are a group of researchers at the Child and Family Research Institute at BC Children’s Hospital, and we’re looking for participants to help us understand how people with Au-tism process language. Understanding language processing in the brain may help development of better therapies for people with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). We need people who are:

  • Male, between 14 and 30 years of age
  • Right-handed
  • Verbal, with English as their first language
  • Reading at or above a grade 5 level
  • Currently living in BC
  • Diagnosed with an ASD

The study involves:

  • Participating in language and thinking tasks
  • Separate interviews with you and your parents
  • Non-invasive MRI and EEG scans while reading sentences on a monitor

Scheduling is flexible and we offer an honorarium for your time. We’ll reimburse you for your travel expenses. For more information and to sign up, please contact Keith at kmclarren@cfri.ca or 604-875-3068
