Study: Autism & functioning impairment

U of South Florida

The Rothman Center for Pediatric Neuropsychiatry at the University of South Florida is conducting an internet study entitled Predictors of Impairment in Pediatric Autism Spectrum Disorders. The purpose of the study is to investigate the relationship between autism spectrum disorder (ASD) symptoms and functional impairment and to gain a comprehensive understanding of the co-occurring factors (e.g., anxiety, behavior, etc.) that may contribute to this relationship.

Inclusion criteria are as follows: (a) The child participants must have an ASD diagnosis; (b) The child participants must be between the ages of 5 and 18 years; (c) The parent or caregiver participants must have a computer with internet access and know how to navigate through the website; (d) The participants must be English speaking as we are unable to translate the measures due to resource limitations. Participants who do not wish to participate in the study will be excluded.
