The Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is recruiting boys with fragile X syndrome and autism spectrum disorder for a study on language and communication skills and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The purpose of this research is to better understand how children with fragile X and children with ASD use language. All of the testing is done at the Waisman Center, and can be scheduled at your convenience.

Eligibility. Males between 9 and 18 years of age and speaking in at least 2-3 word phrases.

Study activities include completing standardized tests, a conversation language sample, as well as an autism diagnostic evaluation. Parents will complete an interview about their son’s behaviors and communication abilities. Participants will also undergo an MRI scan and we will ask parents to help make your son comfortable in the MRI scanner during the scan.

Families will receive $150 for their participation and all travel costs (flights, mileage, and hotel) to the Waisman Center are covered.
