Help us test an e-health application for identifying autism

Principal Investigator: Zachary E. Warren, Ph.D.

Other researchers: Josh Wade, M.S.


We are looking for pediatric professionals to participate in a study to see if a new e-health application designed for professionals may be useful in assessing risk for autism.

The application:

Autoscreen is a measure consisting of seven short, developmentally appropriate activities that gauge ASD risk using easily accessible materials like bubbles, snacks, and balloons. It requires approximately 15 minutes to complete. Training is embedded within the application. Participants will not be expected to be familiar with the procedures prior to arrival.

What the study involves:

  • One visit to Vanderbilt, lasting approximately four hours
  • Administering the Autoscreen app with approximately 4-5 young children during the half-day session. All children will be between the ages of 18-36 months.
  • Completing two surveys to provide feedback.

Participant Criteria

Pediatric professionals


Primary care physicians / pediatricians will be paid $800 in cash or Amazon or Visa gift cards following completion of the study day.
