SASI is a longitudinal study which aims to understand individual differences in social and sensory development in typically developing and high-risk infants and toddlers. This study examines these domains through behavioral and physiological measures. We will be looking for families with an infant or toddler between the ages of 6 and 16 months to participate. We will be recruiting both a general community sample of infants as well as infants who have an older sibling with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and may be at higher familial risk. Study participation includes a brief survey and, depending on survey outcomes, 3 assessment time points over 3 months. Your family will be compensated for your time (up to $150), and parking is provided.
