***PARTICIPANTS NEEDED***

This is being overseen by Dr Mel Rutherford who is also one of our Foundations Board Members. He also did the reseach on Tina Fougere`s Twin Documentation. This ended up as a Twin Study that Made Medical History Breakthough World Wide as to why there is earlier age diagnosing.

Dr. Mel Rutherford is overseeing this. If there is any questions you may have please email the foundation at cnaf_autism@hotmail.com .

Researchers from McMaster University. We are looking to see if the parents of (a) child(ren) on the autism spectrum perform differently on a visual task than the parents of children who are not on the autism spectrum. Parents will be asked to answer some demographic questions and questions about how they prefer to perform activities, and then they will be shown various images, and asked to answer questions about those images to the best of their ability. There is very little risk associated with these activities. The parent and the child’s other biological parent have to take part, but can take part at different times if necessary. They will each be compensated $15 for their time and travel expenses.

Let us know if you are interested and we will email you the consent letter and all the information about what will happen during the study, potential benefits and more.
