Autism Study Survey

The Autism Center at the Child Mind Institute is seeking children between the ages of 20 and 34 months to participate in our study on the brain and behavioral changes of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) over the first five years of life.

Our research aims to learn how changes in restricted, repetitive movements and brain functions affect the development of children with ASD. The ultimate goal is to contribute to improving individualized treatment for children with ASD. We hope families will consider participating in our study.

Participation involves 1 – 4 visits each year over the course of 3 years consisting of no cost child cognitive and play-based assessments, parent interviews, and child natural sleep MRI. Each year, families will receive a written summary report detailing the results of testing. If applicable, they will receive a diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

If you are interested in participating, please email us at, call us at 646.625.4280 or at 646.625.4414.
