GAMES Project

Research Study

Do you know a 7-11 year old with high-functioning autism spectrum disorder?

Scientists at Boston Children’s Hospital are seeking children with autism spectrum disorder to help test a new executive function intervention. Executive function skills allow children to manage complex or conflicting information while solving problems. Participation in the GAMES Project consists of phone calls, visits, & questionnaires. Some visits include EEG, a non-invasive recording of brain activity. Some children will receive additional game-like computer training. Children not assigned to the training group may receive training at the end of the study if it is beneficial. Families may benefit by helping to test a new intervention. All families will receive feedback about their child’s development, free parking and up to $100 for participating.
