  As new drugs, therapies, and treatments are developed and tested, those which hold promise are further tested in controlled, closely monitored environments using patient volunteers. These human research studies are commonly called clinical trials. This area contains listings of clinical trials we believe will be of interest to the TelAbility Community.

For comprehensive information or patients considering participating in a clinical trial please visit
"What Is A Clinical Trial?" available from the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease at the
National Institutes of Health.

Should you locate a particular clinical trial that interests you, please use the specific contact information in the listing to obtain more detailed information.

Sensory Experiences Study Examines Developmental Delays
 

Start Date:

End Date:

06/30/2013 12:00 AM
  

Description:

The Sensory Experiences Project Needs You!

We are currently recruiting children ages 2-12 with autism and/or developmental delays, Down syndrome and other genetic syndromes resulting in developmental delays to learn more about children?s sensory experiences, the impact of these experiences on children and their families, and changes in these experiences over time.

Parents will complete a packet of questionnaires and some interviews about their child. Their child receives developmental and play-based sensory assessments. In addition, some families that qualify may be asked to participate in other components of the project, including an analysis of videos from the infancy period, an EEG study that analyzes brain waves, and/or an eye-tracking task to learn more about the nature of sensory responses to novel auditory or visual stimuli. The time commitment varies (5 to 9 hours) depending upon which components are completed.

Benefits:

? All families will receive a summary of the results of their child?s developmental and sensory assessments.
? Families of children who complete the EEG will also receive a certificate with a picture of their child?s brain waves.
? All families will receive financial incentives (between $25 and $220 depending upon which components of the project are completed). Mileage reimbursement is available for families who are traveling more than 20 miles each way.
