My name is Breanne Kearney and I am a researcher at University College London. We are reaching out to parents willing to participate in a new study entitled ‘Sensory reactivity in genetic syndromes and autism’.
We are looking for autistic children 5 years and above and their parent/carers to take part in some fun social and non-social games, with and without background noise, whilst the child wears a sensor watch. The study will take place online, using video teleconferencing from the comfort of your home and should take about two hours each parent (less than 1 hour for the child). We will compensate £7.50/hour for your time and effort in the form of Amazon vouchers.
Our research, funded by University College London, focuses on sensory processing and physiological responsivity in autistic children, how this differs from typical development, and whether this is similar in other developmental disorders and related conditions. It is hoped that this research will help improve our understanding of how to support individuals who experience sensory processing difficulties, such as individuals with genetic syndromes and autism. Autistic adults were consulted whilst designing this study.
Please do get in touch if you are interested, or if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Best wishes, Breanne
