Principal Investigator: Amy Weitlauf, Ph.D.
We want to learn about new ways to measure and understand behavior in children and teenagers.
If you participate,
- You and your child will come to Vanderbilt for up to 3 sessions lasting about 90 minutes.
- We will talk to you about your child’s behavior.
- Your child will do different things with a therapist while we measure his or her heartrate, breathing, and movement using a Fitbit-like watch and a special cotton hoodie.
We will also take video and make notes about the behavior that he or she shows.
This is a voluntary research study.
Children ages 10-15 who have diagnoses like autism spectrum disorder or intellectual disability. We are also seeking children without a diagnosis who may get upset or aggressive (hitting, yelling) when they are frustrated.
Families will be given a $100 Amazon gift card for participating.
