Research Study

***Online Study of Children’s Friendships***

We are looking for girls and boys ages 8-11 to tell us about their friendships! The FRIENDS study is a doctoral dissertation study that aims to learn more about what children want and expect from their friendships. We are interested to include children with autism spectrum disorder as well as children without autism, as we aim to understand all children’s experiences with friendships, as well as the ways these experiences may be similar or different for children with and without autism. Participation includes online parent questionnaires and a 1 hour Zoom videoconference meeting with your child to conduct a brief interview and questionnaires. Families will be provided with a $10 Amazon gift card for their participation.

Please contact Melanie Feldman at (617) 800-9649 or at, or let us know you’re interested at our survey link:
