Perception of Emotional Prosody and Task Dependent Performance in Individuals with Autism

Research Study

We require approximately 50 youth and adult (16 to 80 years of age) volunteers with Autism to provide data that will allow us to investigate emotional processing in speech. We are recruiting approximately even numbers of male and female participants. Participants must not have a significant hearing impairment, a seizure disorder and/or require the use of a hearing device.

This is an online study which will take around 60 minutes to complete. You will be asked to answer a series of questions about yourself and to identify the direction of speech and non-speech sounds in addition to matching emotional speech sounds to the corresponding word label. You will hear similar sounds several times and we ask that you wear earphones, if you can.

To thank you for participating in our study and helping to advance our research, we will reward you with one entry into a prize draw of $100 (e-transfer).
