Children with ASD must be accompanied by a parent/caregiver and should be able to participate in fluent conversations in English. There is no cost associated with the study, and participants will receive diagnostic evaluations and follow-up care with licensed clinicians. If you have questions or want to enroll in the study, please contact Anthony Burns at 312-942-6331 or [email protected].
